Wigan chairman Dave Whelan says Everton will need to offer at least £14million if they want to sign Latics midfielder James McCarthy.

Roberto is chasing James. If Everton sell Fellaini, they are going to come in again for our boy.
It depends whether Fellaini goes today. I have heard that he's definitely going.
If Fellaini goes, Everton are going to get their £30million or whatever. Roberto knows what James is valued at, so they've got to come back in with the right amount. You've got to be talking £14million or maybe a little more.
Everton have made a second bid of around million £12.5million for James McCarthy, after having an opening bid of £10.5million rejected by Wigan, according to reports.
Any potential money from the sale of McCarthy could be used to sign Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes, who is the subject of a club record bid from Wigan.
