Wigan Athletic - Figueroa Seals the Deal

Wigan Athletic - Figueroa Seals the Deal


Honduras left back Maynor Figueroa today completed his permanent switch from home country club Deportivo Olimpia to Wigan Athletic where he has spent the past year on loan in a deal worth £1.5 million

The classy left back has put pen to paper on a 3½ year contract and he was absolutely delighted that he is now a fully fledged Latic, Figueroa told the clubs official site:

'To play in the English Premier League has always been a dream for me and I am really happy that Wigan have offered me the chance to stay here.

'I have had to take every stage as it comes this last 12 months but thankfully it has gone OK for me and now I look forward to being a Wigan player for the next few seasons.

'I want to thank Steve Bruce for having faith in me and I hope I can repay him by serving the club to the best of my abilities during my time here.'


Latics boss Steve Bruce is very pleased to get Figgy signed up and he told reporters:

'It's always hard when you come into a foreign country when you don't know anybody and you can't speak the language but from day one I've been impressed with Maynor's attitude and his professionalism.

'He has done well for us this season and is now getting used to the rigours of the Premier League. I think he can go on to have a great career with us. He's strong, quick and powerful and I think the best is yet to come from him.'
