Charles N’Zogbia still views Wigan Athletic as a “springboard” despite failing to secure a move to Birmingham City.
The 24-year-old France international saw a move to St Andrew’s fall through last month after failing to agree personal terms.
At the time he was unsettled at Wigan and keen to move on and N’Zogbia has again suggested that his spell at the DW Stadium is unlikely to be a lengthy one.
He joined the Latics from Newcastle United in January 2009.
“The club remains a springboard but I made a mistake and was given bad advice,” he told L’Equipe.
“I had a good talk with coach Roberto Martinez and he relies on me.
“I have the quality to reach a new level but to achieve it I have to play and Wigan offers me this opportunity.
“We don’t know what can happen in winter or at the end of the season, I have two years remaining on my contract.
“Playing in England is the top but when the winter transfer window opens I will talk with my officials.”
