The Latics finished fifth in the Championship in the 2013/14 campaign, but failed to get past Queens Park Rangers in the play-off semi-finals.

The 2013 FA Cup winners will be aiming for Premier League promotion in the upcoming season, and manager Uwe Rosler has identified the need for a forward.

The 45-year-old German boss met with Whelan in Majorca to discuss which players to sign this summer transfer window.

"We've been chatting about next season, and I have to say things are really taking shape," Whelan told the Wigan Evening Post.

"Uwe's looking to bring in a striker, and he thinks he’s got one. We're looking to bring in three or four players in total. That should do us for the new season."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.
