Dave Whelan: Says Wigan will not make any moves until after Euros
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan says the club will not be conducting any business in the transfer market until after Euro 2012.
Whelan has confirmed manager Roberto Martinez is in Poland and Ukraine running the rule over a number of targets, while the Latics have also been linked with Everton's Nigerian forward Victor Anichebe.
But the chairman does not expect Wigan to make any moves until at least the start of next month.
He told the Wigan Evening Post: "Roberto is still over at the Euros, watching plenty of matches and plenty of players.
"We have a number of scouts over there as well so we are having a good look at the players on offer.
"I've no doubt there will be some movement on that score, but it won't be until after the tournament has finished, that's for sure."
The Latics have given new deals to James McArthur and Mike Pollitt but Martinez is yet to make any new additions to his squad.
Momo Diame and Chris Kirkland have departed on free transfers to West Ham and Sheffield Wednesday respectively, while star winger Victor Moses was the subject of a failed bid from Chelsea and Blackpool are thought to be keen to sign Nouha Dicko on loan for another season.
