Surely this source can not be serious?
Dave Whelan is ready to sanction the January sale of Emile Heskey in a bid to save Wigan from a £4million summer bombshell.
England striker Heskey, 30, has snubbed Wigan‘s attempts to hand him a new deal to replace his current contract, which expires at the end of the season.

Once again Liverpool are strongly linked with a move for a player they spent an incredible £11m on eight years ago! I really do not see this happening at all, the forward may have been in decent form but he is simply not good enough for the club and arguably wasn’t good enough when Houllier invested all that cash in him all those years ago. I can’t for the life of me see how all the hullaballoo over the England man has come from and I wouldn’t be surprised if he stayed at the JJB due to lack of significant offers. Yes the former Leicester man is a good frontman to ping the ball up to and yes he does have the strength and determination to get his fair share of admirers but whichever way you look at it, he simply does not weigh in with anywhere near enough goals, he has managed six goals in his last 40 Premier League starts. Are there any Anfield supporters who would welcome this move?
