Fulham bid for Wigan striker

Updated: January 30, 2012

Fulham have reportedly bid for Wigan’s Colombian striker Hugo Rodallega.

The 26 year old is out of contract at the end of the season and Fulham are believed to have offered Wigan £2m plus Andy Johnson.

West Brom and QPR are also thought to be interested in the Colombian, with QPR reportedly having a bid rejected for Rodallega during the transfer window.

Manager Roberto Martinez has left the door open for Rodallega’s departure. The Spaniard said: “We are in a position where no-one is bigger than the football club”.

Martinez refused to countenance the sale of Victor Moses or James McCarthy, however.

The 38 year old said: “Victor and James are the two younger players in this football club and it would be wrong for us to sell these assets. Obviously with other players, when you get in a position when your contract is short-term with the club, it is a completely different situation.”

Rodallega joined Wigan for £4.5m in January 2009. The striker was a key component of Wigan’s survival campaigns, scoring a total of 24 league goals in 98 matches. The 26 year old has only scored two goals in the Premier League this year, however.
