Steven Caldwell Joins The Latics


Wigan Athletic have announced the signing of Scotland international defender Steven Caldwell who is a free agent since finishing his contract at Burnley in the summer, the 29 year old has been training with the squad over the past few weeks, and has impressed manager Roberto Martinez.

Caldwell has signed a one year deal at the DW Stadium and is available for tomorrow night`s Carling Cup game at Hartlepool United.

Speaking about the signing Latics boss Roberto Martinez said: "We have seen what Steven is all about during his time here, a leader on and off the field and he is a great personality to have in the dressing room. He has shown real professionalism in his time with us and we are delighted to have him on board.

"He has good experience of the Premier League and has played in the Champions League and UEFA Cup, plus is a full Scotland international.

"He is a totally committed defender who will add fantastic competition to the squad."


Caldwell was in the Latics side who defeated Dundee United in the pre-season friendly at Tannadice earlier this month, joins his brother Gary at Wigan, who was named club captain last week.

Steven says: "Gary has of course told me what the club is like and how impressed he has been with the set up here, and I am delighted to have sorted out my future now. I have already got to know the lads over the past few weeks and I can`t wait to get started and fight for my place."
