Deal not yet agreed, says agent.The agent of Victor Moses says reports the 21-year-old is set to join Chelsea are wide of the mark.
The 21-year-old winger has been linked with a move to the European Champions all summer and the two clubs reportedly agreed a £9m deal last week.
Moses’ agent has now dismissed the reports but refused to give any indication of what is causing a hold-up in the deal.
Neil Fewings told Sky Sports: “Reports that a £9m deal has been agreed between Chelsea and Wigan are not true.”
It is believed that Wigan chairman Dave Whelan initially demanded £10m for Moses but lowered his asking price to nearer the £8.5m mark in order to encouraged a renewed bid from the European Champions.
Liverpool and Tottenham are both monitoring the situation and the news of a delay in Moses’ Chelsea switch may prompt rivals bid from the pair.
