Waldo Ponce Joins Wigan Athletic

Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of Chile international defender Waldo Ponce and he officially becomes a Latics player on Saturday, January 2nd 2010.

Ponce will join on an initial one year deal which is a compromise with the player wanting 18 months and the Latics offering just six at the start of negotiations with concerns over the 27 year old being up to the rigours of the Premier League

Ponce has had one unsuccessful period in European football in 2003 when he had a 6 month loan spell with German club Wolfsburg where he only managed 5 appearances and was very unconvincing but he was one of the stars of the South America world cup qualifiers and helped Chile to comfortably qualify for the finals.

Ponce`s deal at his current club, Velez Sarsfield of Argentina, runs out on the 31st December and he will be joining the Latics on a free leaving the player to receive $1.4 million in wages. Ponce has represented Chile 23 times scoring twice.
