Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez says the club are still awaiting a suitable bid for Charles N'Zogbia, despite plenty of interest reported interest from Aston Villa.

The French winger had also been linked with Liverpool before The Reds signed Stewart Downing.

However, Martinez claims that the club want to keep N'Zogbia and are still waiting for a suitable bid for the player.

"As it stands we're delighted Charles is a Wigan Athletic player who has matured so much over the last few months and is ready to take his game onto another level.


"In football, things can change hour by hour, but as it stands at this moment Charles is very much a Wigan player and is training as usual with the rest of the squad ahead of our trip to Austria.

"We still need to replace the gap left by Tom Cleverley after he returned to Manchester United.

"That aside, we're very happy with the numbers in the squad, but it's important to try and improve upon that in each window and that's where our work is throughout the year."

Cleverly stared in the Wigan side that avoided the drop last season, but now back at United, Wigan are desperate to cling on to their top players.

United confirmed earlier this week that neither Cleverley, nor Danny Welbeck, who spent last season at Sunderland, would leave the club on loan this season.
