Wigan are set to head into their Barclays Premier League clash against Southampton at St Mary's without star forward Victor Moses after the Latics accepted an improved bid from Chelsea.

Moses played well against Roberto di Matteo's men last weekend and the Londoners came back with their fifth offer - believed to be in the region of £9million - which the club have reluctantly accepted.

A statement from Wigan said: "The club can confirm that after four unsuccessful bids from Chelsea for Victor Moses, a fifth bid has finally met the valuation and terms set by Wigan Athletic and been accepted."
