Wigan accept latest Chelsea offer for Moses

Victor Moses could be on the verge of a move to Chelsea after Wigan Athletic accepted a £9m offer for the Nigeria international, the BBC has reported.

Four prior bids were rejected before Chelsea and Wigan eventually agreed on a price for the 21-year-old, with the BBC claiming the deal will see the Champions League winners pay £7m up front and a further £2m in add-ons.

Moses had signalled his desire to leave the DW Stadium by declining to sign a new contract before his current deal expires next summer, but did play against Chelsea for Wigan on the opening weekend of the season.

His current club lost to his prospective new employers 2-0 but Moses entered a performance that impressed Latics manager Roberto Martinez, who praised the maturity of the former England U-21 international.

Moses has been at Wigan since 2010, moving from Championship side Crystal Palace, and last season scored six goals in the league to help Wigan retain their top-flight status.
