Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega is wanted by Tottenham and Fulham at the end of the season.

The Colombian was close to agreeing moves with both London clubs this week, with loan switches still being discussed right up to Tuesday night’s deadline.

But the proposals came too late, and left Wigan boss Roberto Martinez with no time to find a replacement.

Wigan knows Rodallega will leave as a free agent, but turned down a £4million bid for him from QPR because they did not want to sell to a survival-fight rival.

Hugo Rodallega was hotly tipped to leave the DW Stadium before the transfer window slammed shut but Roberto Martinez fought off advances for his striker, clearly feeling that whilst he may lose the Colombian for nothing in the summer he could at least call upon the 26 year old for the remainder of this campaign.

Rodallega finished top scorer at Wigan for the past two seasons though this season has managed just two goals.

Harry Redknapp’s interest in Rodallega will increase if he fails to lure Emmanuel Adebayor to join the White Hart Lane side on a permanent basis. Martin Jol signed Pavel Pogrebnyak on deadline day but also lost Bobby Zamora and is likely to see Andy Johnson leave in the summer so he may well be in need of another striking option come the summer.
