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

Billy Sharp Attracting Wigan Athletic Interest



Wigan Athletic are being linked with a move for Doncaster Rovers marksman Billy Sharp who is currently the inform striker in the Championship.

Both Southampton and Ipswich have reportedly shown an interest but not met the asking price for the 25 year old, now it is rumoured that the Latics are following the hotshot

Doncaster chairman, John Ryan has confirmed that Sharp, who has 9 league goals in 15 appearances this season, has a £3 million release clause in his contract and that if any club was willing to match that in January then they would be free to talk to the former Scunthorpe and Sheffield United player.

Ryan said: 'I don't know whether we can keep Billy here'

'There has been a lot of loose talk and idle chatter surrounding the lad, so I want to set the record straight once and for all.

'When the window opens on January 1, Billy's contract with Doncaster Rovers will include a release clause priced at exactly £3m.

'Lots of clubs are circling. Southampton and Ipswich made previous bids. Anybody who matches that new figure can talk to Billy.

'Obviously, we don`t want to lose the lad at this vital stage when we are fighting to retain our Championship status.

'I've given my word to Billy, though. We have a gentlemen's agreement and any final decision on a move is down to Billy himself.'

He can pop the goals in at his current level, but can he make the step?
