Wigan Athletic have confirmed that new signing Roger Espinoza has been given the all clear (internationally speaking) to make his debut for the Latics in tomorrow's FA cup tie against Bournemouth
In an official statement the clubs say's:
The club are delighted to confirm that the transfer of Honduran international midfielder Roger Espinoza from Sporting Kansas City has been officially completed and the 26 year old is eligible to play in tomorrow`s FA Cup 3rd Round tie with AFC Bournemouth.
Espinoza flew in to Wigan yesterday after securing a visa for the UK in New York earlier this week, and has now joined up with the rest of the Latics squad. He has put pen to paper on a two and a half year deal, having had a work permit granted in December.
The Honduras international is very excited about his new venture and speaking to the official site Espinoza said - 'I just want to say a big thank you to everyone at the club who have been working so hard to get everything through in time, and for the manager to have the belief in me. Now it`s down to business.'
Latics boss Roberto Martinez said of his latest capture - 'It is great to finally welcome Roger to Wigan and I know the supporters will give him a real Latics welcome.
'Usually players would have more time preparing for their debut and getting used to their new team-mates, but Roger is so desperate to play as soon as he can that we hope to see him on the pitch on Saturday.
'He is an excellent talent and every time we have seen him play he has shown the desire that as a club we like to see from our players.'
