Ross McCormack remains keen on agreeing a summer transfer to Wigan, despite being urged to re-think the move by Motherwell manager Mark McGhee.
The Motherwell striker, who is also a target of Middlesbrough, has previously been told by McGhee that he could do better than a move to Steve Bruce's struggling Premier League side.
However, McCormack's representative - Barry Hughes - has reiterated that McCormack still has his sights set on a switch to the JJB.
Hughes has also hit back at criticism from McGhee suggesting that McCormack, who admits he may use the move to Wigan as a stepping stone to joining a bigger club in the future, is being rushed into the transfer.
"I don't have a Fifa licence to be an agent," Hughes told the Daily Record. "I've never held one and have no intention of getting one. There is a stigma attached to agents and I want no part of that.
"I promote Ross and any deals I discuss with any club are conducted in the presence of a Fifa-registered agent.
"I told Ross the money Wigan and Middlesbrough were offering for him and left the final say up to him.
"My advice was he should wait until the close season before making his mind up.
"But he's decided he wants security. He wants to avoid the risk of a leg break or a cruciate injury between now and the end of the season."
