Premiership clubs Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers and Charlton Athletic are all interested in signing Jason Roberts, as well as relegeated Birmingham City, according to our old friend, agent Willie McKay.

McKay told Sky Sports: ‘There have been three different offers from Besiktas, but they have been rejected by Wigan. Jason is away on holiday at the minute, but he is keen to speak to Besiktas to see what is on offer. He is looking to get the okay from Wigan to allow him to talk to them.

‘I am aware of the interest from Birmingham but as far as we know there has been no offer. There has been a lot of talk but nothing has been done. I believe Aston Villa, Charlton and Blackburn are also keeping tabs on him.

‘Obviously Wigan are looking to bring in a new striker and Jason feels he might have to go. He has been a good servant to Wigan and hopes they will let him go rather than move him on where they will get the most money. Jason wants his future sorted out as soon as possible.’
