The 27-year-old defender signed a deal with the Latics prior to the World Cup after his contract expired with Club Bruges. Alcaraz impressed in South Africa and comments reportedly made by him to a radio station in his homeland on Thursday claimed that, following interest from a number of clubs, his future remained uncertain.

However, a Wigan spokesperson told Press Association Sport the player is tied to the club and he is scheduled to return for pre-season training later this month after a post-World Cup rest.
