Manager Mark Warburton has hit out at rumours that Brentford had let Adam Forshaw sign for Wigan on the cheap.
Last season's League One player of the year looks to be on his way to Wigan after the Bees accepted the Latics’ bid for the former Everton youngster, who made exactly 100 appearances over two years with Brentford.
Reports have suggested a fee varying between £2 million and £3million was agreed, but Warburton insisted the deal was better for the Bees than that.
He said: "As far as I know Forshaw has gone, but anyone who thinks we’ve let the League One player of the year and the talent of Adam Forshaw go for £2-3million is on a different planet to me. The club stuck by their valuation, and the owner is happy. Some of these reports are embarrassing."
Forshaw has not played for the first team this season amidst reports that two previous failed bids by Wigan had unsettled him, but he did appear for the development squad in their game against Crewe last week.
