N'Zogbia has constantly been linked with a move away from the DW Stadium and was the subject of a deadline day bid from Newcastle in January transfer window. He has recently been scouted by Liverpool.

The Frenchman joined Wigan in a £6m deal from Newcastle in January 2009 and is now ready for a new challenge, although he wants to help the Latics avoid the drop before he leaves.

"At the start Wigan was a springboard club for me," N'Zogbia told The Sun. "But I've been here two years and I want to do everything possible to keep the club in the Premier League.

"I'll finish this season and then look at my future."

N'Zogbia nearly joined Birmingham before the start of the season but rejected a move to the Carling Cup finalists.

"I have no regrets. I have my reasons for not going to Birmingham, who were the only club to have made an offer."
