Latics Confirm Maloney Signing




Wigan Athletic have confirmed the signing of Scotland international Shaun Maloney from Celtic, for an undisclosed fee.

Latics boss Roberto Martinez is excited by his latest purchase. He said: "We`re delighted to welcome Shaun, who has great experience and is at the perfect age to come and bring something different to our squad.

"His previous experience in the Premier League will be a great platform to start his Wigan Athletic career, and now we want to make sure he enjoys that homely feeling at our football club to be able to bring his magic to our strong group of players."


Maloney previously played under Martin O`Neill at Aston Villa between 2007-08, scoring five goals in 30 appearances.

So far this season Maloney has made four appearances in the SPL, following his 28 appearances last term.

A former team mate of current skipper Gary Caldwell at Celtic Park, he is relishing the challenge of joining up with Latics: "As soon as I found out about the move I got excited. The gaffer likes to play the right way and there`s a tremendous squad here full of great potential.

"I need to focus on winning a place in the team and doing the best I can for the team.

"I want to thank everyone at Celtic which has been my life for so long now, and especially all the fans. But I`ve got an exciting challenge now and I can`t wait to get started."


Welcome on board Shaun
