Chelsea star Victor Moses has made a significant donation to support his former club Wigan Athletic amid their financial struggles, the club's supporters body confirmed.

The club confirms receiving of the donation on their website and social media handle

The aim of the supporters is to raise £750,000 to support the club, but with the massive donation by Moses, they are now within £100,000 of the target.

“Wow – what can we say? When Victor got in touch to say he wanted to help by donating such a substantial amount, I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing – it’s such an incredible gesture,” Molyneux said.

“Victor wanted to make the donation and remain anonymous but we simply had to make sure he gets the recognition he deserves.

"Victor’s contribution has taken us past £650,000 and to within £100,000 of our next target of £750,000.

“We are so thankful to Victor for his support. He is an excellent footballer, a true role model, and someone we always enjoyed watching at the DW Stadium – he will always be welcome back here, even more so now!”
