VICTOR MOSES was on his way to Chelsea from Wigan last night after they agreed a £9million fee.
The latest twist in the saga came hours after Latics boss Roberto Martinez called Chelsea “cheap” for not meeting their valuation of the former England Under-21 winger.
Chelsea finally met the asking price with their fifth bid.
And, with just one more year on his contract, Wigan owner Dave Whelan knew Moses could walk away next summer and they would get far less in compensation.
The former Crystal Palace star, 21, clinched the deal he was desperate for with an outstanding performance for Wigan in their season-opener against Chelsea last weekend.
Martinez said earlier yesterday: “We all know when a top, top club wants a player, they just come in, match the valuation and take him.
“That’s not been the case so there has been a real question mark over whether that interest was real.
“We hadn’t had an offer which matches what the club wants — so all the rest is cheap talk.”
