Wigan warn Aston Villa that they are not the only club interested in £10m-rated Charles N'Zogbia.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has warned Aston Villa that they are not the only club trying to sign Charles N'Zogbia.

The Midlands side have already had one bid for the midfielder rejected by Wigan, who are holding out for a fee of £10m.

"(Villa) are not the sole bidders, there are another couple of clubs who are desperate to sign him," Whelan told Sky Sports News.

"I have always said for £10m he is an absolute snip, if Stewart Downing can change hands for £20m I don't know what Charles is worth".

N'Zogbia has not travelled with the rest of the Wigan squad for their pre-season tour of Austria amid rumours that he is on the verge of a move.
