Wigan’s £10m rated midfielder Nick Powell has attracted interest from several Premier League and Championship clubs during the summer transfer window but following Latics 1-0 victory against Rotherham United he expressed his desire to stay with the club.
The 24-year-old former Manchester United player is out of contract at the end of the Championship season but speaking exclusively to ‘Let’s Hang On’ Powell said,
“I want to stay at Wigan and am waiting for a contract offer from the new owners.”
Representatives of the prospective new owners the International Entertainment Corporation (IEC) were at Saturday’s game but their protracted takeover of the club from the Whelan family has still to be finalised.
Powell was substituted after 60 minutes on Saturday with a tight hamstring but he said he would be fit and available for Latics next fixture away at Brentford following the international break.
