Chimbonda Expected Back

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Jewell expects French international right-back Pascal Chimbonda to return to first-team training with the Latics at the end of the month.

Chimbonda has been given a few weeks off after his involvement at the World Cup with the French Squad.

Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham have both made bids of around 4million for the right-back, but Wigan Athletic are sticking to their valuation of 6million.

Paul Jewell has said that he is willing to welcome Chimbonda back into the fold providing he shows a willingness to play for Latics.

Jewell said :'I've not had any contact with him while he has been at the World Cup, although I did send him a message ahead of the final wishing him good luck. He will now have a few weeks off because he has been with the France squad all summer, and he is due in on July 30. I expect him to come back with his attitude right and spot on, and if that's the case he will be considered for selection. If it's not the case, he won't be.'

Chimbo will walk into training, head bowed as he walks towards Jewell, left hand stretched out as he hands Jewell a second piece of paper, this time its the "sorry" note.

I think he might have to - got a bit big for his boots at the end of the season, methinks
