Whelan confident Martinez will stay

I told him exactly as I saw it: his future for the next two years lies with Wigan Athletic.

If he wants to opt out of his contract and go then there is a bit of compensation to be paid but I hope that won't be the case. I hope he will extend his contract.

As I see it there are two (Premier League) clubs available and does each club want him? We are talking about Roberto for the whole of Europe.

I am not sure which club or the other has approached him but I am sure the club which will approach him will be bigger than Wigan.

– Wigan chairman Dave Whelan
