Latics Net Perch - Latest New Signing Unveiled

Wigan Athletic have officially announced the signing of James Perch from Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around the £700,000 mark

The 27 year old former Nottingham Forest player has penned a four year deal at the DW Stadium and becomes Owen Coyle's fourth signing since taking over the hot seat at the Latics

Speaking about his move to the Latics Perch said - 'It feels great to be here with a new challenge ahead of me, and I'm very excited at getting that started.

'The prospect of helping to get the team promoted was really appealing and I can't wait to meet the rest of the boys and get started.

'I think Wigan Athletic is a great club and after speaking with the manager, his ambition and determination to take the club back to the Premier League where it belongs is something I wanted to be a part of.'

Well said James and welcome on board
