Craig Davies joins Wigan Athletic from Bolton Wanderers.

  • Craig Davies joins Wigan Athletic after contract ends at Bolton Wanderers.
  • 29-year-old Craig Davies becomes Gary Caldwell’s seventh signing of the summer.
  • “He’s a proven goalscorer we are delighted to have in the squad.” – Gary Caldwell.
Wigan Athletic have signed Wales international striker Craig Davies after his contract at Bolton Wanderers expired last week.

The 29 year old has put pen to paper on a two year deal at the DW Stadium and has flown over to join the rest of the Latics squad in their warm-weather training camp in Spain.

Latics manager Gary Caldwell feels he will be a big presence on the field:

“Craig’s a powerful striker who has a proven track record in this division. He’s an experienced player who will inspire those around him and we are absolutely delighted he has chosen to be with us.”

Burton-upon-Trent born Davies began his career at Manchester City but had to drop into the Football League to get his career started, where he has enjoyed spells at Oxford United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Oldham Athletic, Stockport County, Brighton & Hove Albion, Yeovil Town, Port Vale, Chesterfield, Barnsley, Preston North End and Bolton. He even spent one season at Verona in Italy.

He netted for Wanderers during last season’s 3-1 defeat at the Macron Stadium, and was a substitute in the 1-1 draw between the sides at the DW Stadium.

He becomes Gary Caldwell’s seventh signing of the summer, following David Perkins, Richard O’Donnell, Craig Morgan, Donervon Daniels, Max Power and Sanmi Odelusi.
