Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan is the belief that the Premier League needs a salary cap.

The Latics chief has seen players get paid more and more in weekly wages over the years but feels something has to be done before things change drastically for the worse.

"We all agree that there now needs to be controls over wages - even Manchester United agree," Whelan told Wigan Today.

"(United chief executive) David Gill has made it clear he would support some kind of control, how the controls are put into place is the tricky bit.

"Personally I wouldn't be afraid to take the toughest route of all and have a ceiling on how much each club can pay in wages. A salary limit needs to be enforced."
