Wigan have finally accepted an offer from Birmingham City for Charles N’Zogbia.

The French winger has been chased by Blues manager Alex McLeish for some time and speculation has constantly had the player linked with a move to St Andrews all summer.

N’Zogbia must now hold talks at St Andrews to agree personal terms after Wigan said they had accepted a ‘much-improved’ offer for the 24-year-old.

A short statement on club website www.wiganlatics.co.uk read: ‘Wigan Athletic can confirm that they have accepted a much improved offer from Birmingham City for France winger Charles N’Zogbia, which has now met the club’s valuation.

‘The player has now been given permission to speak with Birmingham.’
