Rivals eye striker
Sunderland are reported to lining up a bid to sign Wigan striker Victor Moses, after the player refused to open talks over a new deal.
Moses has just over 12 months to run on his current deal but Wigan were hoping to get him tied down to a new one and planned to open talks as soon as the season was over. However the striker has told his agent he has no intention of signing a new deal and that has alerted a number of clubs to his availability, including Sunderland. Martin O'Neill is planning to put his own stamp on the Black Cats squad this summer and Moses is said to be on his list of targets, even if Wigan beat the drop. Latics boss Roberto Martinez has told the player he would be best off staying at the DW Stadium for the good of his career and will do all he can to keep hold. It may be easier said than done though after the player's agent Tony Finnegan claimed a host of Premier League clubs were targeting moves for his client.
