Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega admits he is already in talks with other clubs as the Colombian prepares to leave the struggling Premier League team at the end of the season.
Rodallega's contract expires at the end of the current campaign and with less than six months to run on that deal he is now allowed to discuss a free transfer move with interested parties.
It was expected that Wigan would look to cash in on his services during the January transfer window, rather than risk losing him for nothing, and Arsenal were reported to be among the clubs interested.
No deal was completed so Rodallega will stay until the end of the season, but he appears set to leave the DW Stadium even if Roberto Martinez's team win their fight to avoid relegation.
"It's sure that I won't play anymore for them after this season," Rodallega told The People.
"This will be my last three months with Wigan. I'm already talking with other teams, but I won't name them.
I must respect Wigan.
"Wigan have received many offers for me, but they always said no. I want to leave Wigan with the team having avoided relegation.
"I would love that Wigan fans recognise my effort when I leave the club in May."
