Wigan Athletic - The Past Weeks Transfer Gossip




A new signing, a trialist in talks, wow the transfer window is really hotting up for the Latics, anyway lets take a look at what`s been happening these past seven days:

David Jones put pen to paper on a contract at the DW Stadium and the former Wolves, Derby and Manchester United man is now a Latics player, welcome on board Jonesy.
