Chelsea are on the verge of signing Victor Moses after Wigan confirmed on their official website they had accepted a bid for the winger.
The European champions have been strongly linked with a move for the Nigerian attacker this summer but have been frustrated in their attempts to sign him after having several bids rejected by the Latics.
However, the Blues have finally been able to strike a deal with chairman Dave Whelan and the player has been given permission to talk with Chelsea.
A statement on Wigans official website read:
“The club can confirm that after four unsuccessful bids from Chelsea for Victor Moses, a fifth bid has today finally met the valuation and terms set by Wigan Athletic and been accepted. The player has been given permission to speak with Chelsea.”
Personal terms and a medical should be nothing more than a formality and Moses could be a Chelsea player this weekend.
The 21-year-old has been a huge success at the DW Stadium following a move from Crystal Palace in 2010. He has gone on to make over 70 appearances for the club and was the driving force behind the clubs miraculous escape last season, including a MOTM performance against Chelsea.
