Zaki happy to leave his options open

In-form Wigan striker Amr Zaki is to wait until the summer before deciding whether he will remain at the JJB Stadium.

Zaki has so far been one of the stars of the new Barclays Premier League campaign after joining Wigan on a season-long loan from El Zamalek.

The Egypt international striker made it six goals in eight matches with a well-taken penalty in Sunday's 2-1 home win over Manchester City.

Manager Steve Bruce recently revealed there is an agreement in place with El Zamalek for the Latics to sign Zaki permanently.

However, Zaki is aware his goal exploits have pushed him into the spotlight and that he could become hot property next summer.

''To attract the attention of clubs so quickly is a good sign for me that I am doing well,'' said Zaki on Arabian TV channel, ShowSports.

''I must thank God for this success. Credit also goes to (Wigan chairman Dave) Whelan and Bruce for their determination to sign me.

''Despite this, all I want now is to concentrate on my game and improve.

''In the summer I will decide what to do - whether I will go back to Egypt, continue at Wigan or move to another club.

''But my wish is to stay here in the Premier League.''
