Wigan boss Roberto Martinez believes Victor Moses is ready to fulfil his potential, with the youngster having been in fine form of late.
Moses has spent the best part of two years at the DW Stadium after the Latics won the race for his signature in January 2010.
As he approaches his 21st birthday, it is felt that he is finally ready to make his mark on the Premier League.
He has offered glimpses of what he is capable of during his time at Wigan, but it is only recently that he has added consistency to his game.
Martinez is confident there is even more to come from the youngster this term, with Moses having netted his first goal in 13 months to help the Latics to a 2-1 victory over West Brom on Saturday.
He said: "It was a real quality finish by Victor for our first goal and great skill by him to get the penalty.
"When you have got talent like Victor, he can be unstoppable in one versus one situations.
"His goal will give him a real confidence boost, but I'm extremely pleased with the level of performance of Victor even though he has not been scoring goals.
"He is 21 on Monday so this is a fantastic birthday present. Getting goals, getting that final pass, or getting penalties, is something he can do.
"He is very natural, extremely talented and has a great love for the game.
"He is still a young man, still improving, still getting better, but his attitude will allow him to fulfil his potential."
Latics skipper Gary Caldwell added: "We all know the talent Victor has got. We see it every day.
"He is a tremendous young talent. I think at times he doesn't know how good he is.
"It is a big step up into the Premier League, but he is growing with every game."
