Both the Mirror and the Sun have run with stories concerning the France internationals position at the Latics with the Sun claiming that N`Zogbia has actually gone on strike and say that there is a meeting set for later today between N`Zogbia, his agent and Latics officials to thrash out the problems.
The Sun claim that N`Zogbia wants to move and that the club aren`t accommodating his desire as he would like with a source saying: ‘Charles is desperate to get out of Wigan. He wants a new challenge and feels the club is not being straight with him.’

The Mirror says that N`Zogbia is set to be fined £70,000 by the Latics for his discipline breach
