West Brom manager Bryan Robson has warned Wigan he 'will fight tooth and nail' to ensure Nathan Ellington remains at The Hawthorns.
The Latics have been linked with the striker who left the JJB Stadium last summer to join the Baggies for £3,000,001 after a release clause was activated in his contract.
Wigan boss Paul Jewell is determined to strengthen his squad, notably in attack due to a lack of goals in the closing stages of the season.
Despite relegation from the Barclays Premiership, Robson admits he is 'under no pressure to sell any player' following talks with chairman Jeremy Peace.
Robson added: 'The chairman has backed me and I don't have to sell Nathan.
'Wigan can say what they like, but Nathan only signed for us last summer and we don't want to sell him.
'He had a stop-start season because of injuries, but he is a major part of my plans.
'Nathan has proved that he can score 25 goals in the Championship and that's what we want him to do next season.
'I will fight tooth and nail to keep him. There's no way I want to sell Nathan to Wigan or anybody else.'
