Latics Reject 2nd Villa N'Zogbia Offer

Latics Reject 2nd Villa N'Zogbia Offer




Sky Sports are reporting that Wigan Athletic have rejected a second bid from Aston Villa for Charles N`Zogbia.

Villa first registered their interest back in June but that initial bid was deemed not good enough, now the improved offer has also been knocked back.

Latics owner Dave Whelan has said that N`Zogbia would be allowed to leave but only at the price that is right for a player of his quality, the offer from Villa is believed to be in the region of £10 million.

Must be not willing to sell to one of our rivals for that mid-table spot

Mixed reports on this..some say fee agreed but wage demands the problem...some say Wigan wanted £10m and Villa bid £9m..rejected..not quite sure what is true...Can't see anyone else coming up with that much for him though...None of the top 5 are interested and I don't think Everton, Newcastle or Sunderland have the money...Looks like 'Cat and Mouse' between the clubs and possibily the player as well..Will he see his contract out and go where he wants for nothing next season?

Cant blame wigan for wanting big money for their best player...But worbo tottenham 3 years ago where was they? Fighting relegation and where are they now? We shall see end of next season my friend and i highly doubt wigan are a mid table club.

Gibbo because the blue scum didnt have 20million pound going spare that Wigan know about. In fairness you can understand Wigan holding out for more if we can do it to Liverpool for Downing why cant they.

Doesn't he have just one year left on his contract? It's perfectly fine for Wigan to hold out for as much as possible, but they're playing a dangerous game, especially if we back away and nobody else is interested.

Latics v Nottingham Forest - Big Game Preview

You can dress it up as you like, but for the Latics this is a game that they just have to win, we start a run of fixtures that would surely have been earmarked as ones to gain maximum points from and get us up the Championship table.

Forest arrive at the DW Stadium just six points ahead of us in the standings, they have injury problems, particularly in defence, they are on a poor run of form having lost their last three games, conceding 10 goals along the way, this is a time when we simpl
