Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has confirmed Hugo Rodallega will be leaving the club in the summer, despite the Latics staving off the threat of relegation.

Rodallega's form has been disappointing this season, he has bagged just two goals, and his contract will not be extended.

Martinez is unsure where the Colombian is destined for, but is looking to bring in at least four players to replace Rodallega, Chris Kirkland, Steve Gohouri and Mohamed Diame who are out of contract this summer.

"I don't know if he has another club lined up but he will go with our blessing," Martinez said. "I can't praise him enough for his attitude. He's been very unselfish. I think everyone will look at the time he had at the club as a success.

"We have to be prepared and know we need to bring in four players as quickly as possible."
