Moses agent denies reports of Chelsea agreement

Wigan Athletic forward Victor Moses has not agreed a deal to move to Champions League winners Chelsea, the player’s agent has revealed.

Neil Fewings has insisted that no agreement has been struck between the two clubs for the Nigerian international, despite reports of a £9 million switch.

Moses has made more than 70 appearances for the Latics and earned praise for his performances in his side’s fight for Premier League survival at the end of last season.

“Reports that a £9m deal has been agreed between Chelsea and Wigan are not true,” Fewings told Sky Sports.

Chelsea are believed to be looking to add British-based talent to their squad, and think Moses would fit the bill, but will have to meet Wigan’s £10m valuation for a player they signed for £2.5m from Crystal Palace in January 2010.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan exclusively revealed to in mid-June that an offer from the Blues had been rejected, with reports since then claiming that further bids had been made.
