Latics Get the Go As Hugo Gets His Permit


Wigan Athletic have managed to secure a work permit for new signing Hugo Rodallega and he now has the green light to start his Latics career.

The Colombia international forward joins the JJB set up from Mexican club Necaxa and Bruce couldn`t hold his delight when he spoke to reporters when the permit had been granted, the Latics boss said:

'This is great news.'

'I need to thank everyone behind the scenes at Wigan for the hard work they've put in on this one.

'We put together a really strong case and we're delighted we've the green light to press ahead now and try to finalise the transfer.

'It's not done yet, and the player will not be unveiled until it is, but this (work permit) was the major stumbling block.

'We are never comfortable as a club talking about transfers before they are finalised because so much can potentially happen to delay a move.

'However, we have made an exception in this case because the news is in the public domain.

'Hugo has yet to undergo a medical, but we are very optimistic about this going through, hopefully later this week.'

'Like all our overseas transfers, we have worked very hard on this one'

'The club has sent delegations to South America to watch him and to discuss terms with the club and player, and we feel he can be a big success in England.

'He is strong and quick, with an eye for goal and if he is anything like the other South and Central American imports we have brought in to the club, we have netted another gem, that's for sure.'

Aga looked good on youtube and yeah whilst Hugo does, he looks different more like Zaki with how he plays and his 1st intention is always at goal + he looks to be a free kick specialist. Looking forward to see him running around scoring goals in the wigan kit
