Transfer speculation put to bed

Last updated : 24 January 2007 By The Chairman
Outgoing transfer speculation regarding the January window have been well and truly put to bed by Latics owner Simon Corney. Mr. Corney told the official website that the club do not wish to sell any of their prize assets before the end of the season. After investing heavily to keep the club afloat he and the other owners do not want to lose any momentum by having their young talent taken away.

Mr. Corney said, "It's very important we keep this squad together. What would we get for our money anyway? If we sell, we'd only have to buy again and we know that at the moment we have a team capable of challenging for promotion. We've no intention of selling players in the current transfer window. Things may change in the summer, but I'd like to think they'll all be here next season as well. John Sheridan is allowed to bring in one or maybe two players but we need the right person so it's a bit of a catch-22 situation. I would like to see someone here, and John knows he can bring someone in."
