Wigan forward Victor Moses has admitted he is keen to sign for the ‘higgest bidder’ but has acknowledged the Lancashire club have made him a new contract offer.

The 21-year-old dazzled with a string of impressive performances last season as the Latics rallied to finish 15th. The Nigerian joined from Crystal Palace in summer 2010 and has made 72 league appearances in blue and white, scoring eight times.

Bid-spending Chelsea are keen to sign Moses but saw a £4 million bid rejected this week. The European Champions, who are embarking on a major rebuilding exercise this summer have already signed front-men Marko Marin and Eden Hazard, are expected to come back with a higher offer.

Moses completed a round of international fixtures earlier this month and is now keen to resolve his domestic future.

“Now that I am done with the national team, my attention would switch to the transfer window,” he told

“I have heard a lot of offers are on the table. First of all Wigan have the final say but for me the highest bidder would take the day but right now I am still a DW faithful.”

Latics chairman Dave Whelan says a new contract offer is on the table for the young star but expressed concern at the influence of Moses’ agent.

“We’ve made him a very good offer – involving a doubling of his wages – over the next three years,” Whelan told the Evening Post.

“It’s down to whether the lad himself listens to sense, or whether he listens to his agent. The player has to realise that it’s his future we’re talking about not his agent’s.

“Agents want cash out of players, that’s all, whereas we want the lad to realise his potential and reach the highest level he can. If we have to sell him, we will do so reluctantly – but not for the money that is currently on the table.”
