The Spaniard has been linked with a number of clubs in recent weeks and the Latics' relegation from the Premier League - despite also winning the FA Cup - has led to increased speculation about his future.

Whelan said tomorrow was 'D-day' for Martinez, but he remained hopeful that not only would the 39-year-old stay, but also agree a contract extension.

"We have had a constructive meeting today and Roberto wants 24 hours to speak to his wife and decide what he wants to do," he said.

"He needs a bit of time, which I think is fair, and tomorrow we will know - it is decision day."
