"He is a really powerful lad, technically excellent, with good pace and he will fit in well to our system. I have no doubts about him adjusting to English football.

"Antonio is a quality player, with an excellent mix of experience and professionalism and he is enthusiastic about joining the club.

"He has been the captain of his club for three years, which shows you his leadership qualities. He will add great competition to our squad and I know that he is desperate to play for Wigan Athletic and is hungry to have success here."
