Wigan & M'Bami fail to agree deal

Modeste Mbami
Mbami could be on his way to play in Spain

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed midfielder Modeste M'Bami will not be joining the club.

The two parties failed to agree an acceptable deal.

The 26-year-old Cameroon international, who is a free agent after the expiry of his contract with Marseille, spent the last fortnight on trial with Wigan.

M'Bami was offered a short-term deal but wanted a longer contract, and the player is now thought to be close to a move to Spanish side Almeria.

He has 28 caps and seven goals for his country.

M'Bami, who was also linked with a move to Portsmouth, played in the Champions League last season for Marseille.
