Rodallega keen to leave Wigan

Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega has admitted that he wants to leave the club this summer, and is already in discussions with other clubs.

The Colombia international’s contract at the DW Stadium will run out at the end of the season, and despite attempts from The Latics to extend his stay, the South American is determined to leave the relegation-threatened outfit.

“It’s sure that I won’t play anymore for them after this season,” Rodallega told The People.

“This will be my last three months with Wigan.

“I’m already talking with other teams, but I won’t name them. I must respect Wigan. Wigan have received many offers for me, but they always said no.

“I want to leave Wigan with the team having avoided relegation.

“I would love that Wigan fans recognise my effort when I leave the club in May,” he concluded.

Tottenham were believed to be interested in signing Rodallega in the January transfer window but instead acquired Louis Saha, as the Colombian looks towards the next step in his career.
