Wigan have warned off Premiership clubs plotting a move for Nathan Ellington.Wigan have slapped a £12 million price-tag on Nathan Ellington in a bid to ward off interest from a host of Premiership clubs.
The former Bristol Rovers hit-man has been a huge success at the JJB Stadium since arriving around two and a half years ago.
The 23-year-old has managed 41 goals in 96 appearances, including six in an impressive start to this season.
His form has alerted several top-flight clubs, and Aston Villa, Everton, Bolton and Manchester City have all reportedly dispatched scouts to watch him.
However, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan insists the striker is going nowhere, and is understood to have placed a massive £12 million price-tag on his head.
"Nathan is a vital part of our plans for the future," Whelan stated.
