Sammon Joins Derby - Official

Sammon Joins Derby - Official




Wigan Athletic have officially announced that centre forward Conor Sammon has been sold to Championship club Derby County

Even though Sammon scored just one goal in 32 appearances he was loved by the fans at the DW Stadium with his never say die attitude, but with the competition for places in the forward line hotting up with the signing of Arouna Kone and return from loan of Mauro Boselli, Latics boss Roberto Martinez decided to accept Derby's bid for the 25 year old

Derby boss Nigel Clough was obviously delighted to have finally signed the striker he has chased for the past 18 months, he told the Rams official web site - 'When we first drew up a list of potential options with regards to bringing in a new striker it's fair to say Conor was top of the list, our number one target actually, so we're delighted to announce his arrival.

'Having tracked him closely at Kilmarnock and, as everyone knows, being so close to bringing him in 18 months ago, we've monitored his progress at Wigan in the Premier League and we know he is capable of finding the back of the net.

'He is going to be a key player for us and when he plays regularly, we know he can score goals.

'We really like how hard he works too and that means he will fit into our squad comfortably.'


Good luck Conor!

Shame. He was such a hard worker, with his head in the right place. I'm sure he'll be a success at his new club
