Heskey could make January switch

Emile Heskey appears poised to leave Wigan in January following the latest remarks from chairman Dave Whelan.

The 30-year-old is out of contract next summer and has so far shown no sign of urgency to put pen to paper on a new deal and Whelan appears eager to cash in rather than lose him for nothing next summer.

"Emile is out of contract in the summer, but he doesn't want to sign a new one at the moment," said Whelan. "It could cost us two, three or four million (pounds) if that goes on to next summer, so we'll have to see what January brings."

Heskey cost Wigan a club record £5.5million when he joined from Birmingham in the summer of 2006, since when he has scored 15 goals in 81 league and cup appearances.
