Newcastle United's unsettled French midfielder Charles N'Zogbia could be on his way to Wigan Athletic after the Premier League clubs agreed a fee.

The 22-year-old said he would never play for Newcastle again after his name was mispronounced by team manager Joe Kinnear during a post-match television interview after the 2-1 defeat by Manchester City last Wednesday.

Wigan manager Steve Bruce sys the move would be a boost for N'Zogbia after an unhappy spell in the northeast.

The Times says on its website (www.timesonline.co.uk) the club's had agreed a fee of six million pounds, with Wigan defender Ryan Taylor moving to Newcastle as part of the deal.
