'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Chris Kirkland Wants New Latics Deal



Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Chris Kirkland says he would like to extend his stay at the club, despite falling down the pecking order behind Ali Al-Habsi, the former England international wants to prove his fitness and sign a contract extension on his current deal which is due to expire inat the end of the season

Kirkland made just four appearances for the Latics last season and has yet to feature this season, he went on loan to Doncaster earlier this month but that stay was cut short following an injury to his back after just one game for the South Yorkshire club

Kirkland though insists he`s fit and wants the chance to prove himself, speaking to the Daily Mirror Kirkland said: 'First of all, I'd like to regain my place at Wigan and sign a new deal'

'I understand that teams are going to be suspicious, but I hope somebody will take a chance like Paul Jewell did when I came here.

'That paid off for him and the club and whoever takes me will get a player that is ready to shine again. They will get a player who is hungry to put this behind me, too.

'If there was no end in sight, I would be devastated, but I know I am nearly there. People only need to see me training to see that.

'Over the period I've been out of the team at Wigan, I have been fit. Last season, I only missed 14 training sessions. This season, I hadn't missed a single one until I got injured with Doncaster.

'People are going to laugh, but I am more happy with my body now than I ever have been. I know I'm nearly there.

'People will say, 'how can he say that after everything that has happened?', but I know I am getting there. I will get there.'
