Wigan Athletic have signed Villarreal winger Luis Antonio Valencia on loan for a year, with an option of a permanent move at the end of the season.
The 21-year-old Ecuadorian cost Villarreal £1.2 million last year from CD El Nacional.
Jewell said : 'Antonio is something new for Wigan. He has skill in abundance and combines it with electric pace and a high work-rate. He has played in Europe for a season, and I'm convinced he has the attributes to make a success of the Premiership.'
Valencia has 19 caps for his Eucador and played in the 1-0 defeat to England at the World Cup.
Valencia joined Villarreal last year but had a spell on loan with Recreativo Huelva.
