Chimbonda Commits To Wigan

Chimbonda Commits To Wigan

Pascal Chimbonda has said that he will now be staying at Wigan Athletic for the new season, despite bids from Tottenham Hotspur and Middlesbrough.

Chimbonda told Sky Sports: 'For the moment, I will not be going to either Tottenham or Middlesbrough, I will certainly stay with Wigan.

'As the coach and club have always trusted me, there are no problems between us. My next challenge will be to repeat last season's performances.'

i wish him well. dont think spurs would pay more than 4.5 mill for him. not sure his worth that anyway. cant see why wigan wanted to hold onto a player that didnt wanna play for them. sure the fans really like him!!! look forward to coming up there for the away game. good luck this season. come on you spurs

Its probably the best thing for Chimbonda, if he can repeat his form from last season he may be worth closer to £6m, but Tottenham were right not to take the risk, they offered what they thought he was worth and no more, fair play to them....

This is about Dave Whelan (Wigan Chairman) and Willie Makay (Chimbonda's agent) who have had a bit of a tiff. The £6m price tag is designed to ***** Makay off. Makay has already moved Jason Roberts and also unsettled Henri Camera Whelan is not pleased

Still 2 wks to go til transfers end, so lets see what happens! If We increase the offer to around £4.5-5m, Wigan will sell and he'll jump at the chance to leave! Even if he doesnt come now, very interesting to see whether he can produce quality again! I think Wigan should play him, plainly cos he'll play out of his skin to manufacture a move in January and this will just make the bids for him stay at around £5m instead of a heavy drop!
