Wigan are set to open talks with Victor Moses, with the Latics hoping to tie the young forward down to a long-term deal.

The Nigerian born striker moved to the DW Stadium from Crystal Palace in 2010 but has, so far, failed to live up to the early promise he showed at Selhurst Park.

However, the 20-year-old has been in fine form this season as the Roberto Martinez's side look to build a solid foundation having narrowly retaining their top-flight status last term.

And, says Martinez, even though Moses still has two years to run on his present deal, he is a part of the long-term plan at Wigan and, hence, will be offered the opportunity to buy into the club's plans.

“I wanted to make sure once the transfer window closed that we went through players in the last years of their contracts, and players that need to get a reward for what they have achieved," said the Wigan boss.

“We are going through many players in the next few weeks and Victor is one of them.


 

“We have got a couple of players in the final years of their contracts and we are going to start talking to make sure everyone knows where they are.

“We have said we want to achieve this season and take things further. I want the players to know where the next targets are individually in their careers.

“We have got a few young players with big roles and it is important we get stability in their careers and they can concentrate on football.

“Victor Moses is very much in that category.

“He only wants to concentrate on football and the level of football he has shown in starting the first three games has been really, really good. It is now time to kick on.”
