Leicester City striker joins club until end of season

Wigan Athletic are delighted to announce the loan signing of Leicester City striker Martyn Waghorn, who arrives at the DW Stadium until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old former England Under-21 international becomes Uwe Rosler’s fourth signing of the January transfer window, and speaking of the deal the manager said:

“When I met Martyn it was clear he shares the ambitions we have as a club and is relishing the challenges that lie ahead.

“He is a versatile attacking player who can operate in all three positions in the front line, and he also gives us great quality from set-piece situations.

“With a busy fixture schedule ahead of us it was important to bolster our attacking options. So I’m delighted to bring Martyn to the club and can’t wait to start working with him.”

Waghorn joined Leicester from Sunderland in 2010 after a loan spell with the Foxes, and has since spent time on loan at Hull City and, earlier this season, Millwall, scoring three times for the Lions.

The forward also appeared against Latics at The Den back in December, shortly after Rosler was announced as Manager.
