Warnock braced for Wigan bid

13 July 2009 04:27
Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock admits he would not be surprised to see Wigan make a move for young striker Victor Moses. The Nigerian-born England Under-19 starlet, who can also play on the wing, is under contract until 2012, but the Latics are reportedly weighing up a £2.5million bid. And with new Wigan boss Roberto Martinez having seen Moses score against former club Swansea in March, Warnock believes the Spaniard could be lining up a bid. "I've not heard anything at all but it wouldn't surprise me," he said in the South London Press. "Victor was super at Swansea. "I had a good chat with Roberto after that match and told him that Victor would go on to play for one of the top-four clubs." The striker's advisor, Tony Finnigan, added: "I had dialogue last year with Swansea's chief scout and there are numerous other clubs in the Championship who would welcome Victor Moses as part of their squad, but the proof is in the pudding. "Talk is cheap. It's about making a physical offer and Crystal Palace deciding when they deem fit to accept any bid. "Only the manager can decide that."
