  • Winger joins Latics from Wolves after loan spell at Blackpool.
  • “He brings tremendous competition to the squad.” – Gary Caldwell.
Wigan Athletic can confirm the signing of Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Michael Jacobs for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on a three year deal at the DW Stadium and has joined up with the rest of the Latics squad back at Christopher Park, following last week's training camp in Scotland.

Gary Caldwell, Latics manager said:

“I’m really pleased we’ve got this one over the line. Michael knows this league well, and knows what it takes to be successful at this level having played at Wolves when they were promoted in 2014.

“He is a potential match winner on his day and will add terrific competition to the squad, which is now starting to take shape.”

Northamptonshire-born Jacobs came through the ranks at his local club Northampton Town and went on to play 87 times in the league for The Cobblers, scoring 11 times, twice earning the Player of The Season award.

He moved to Derby County in 2012, where he played 42 times, scoring twice. He signed for Wolves in 2013, initially on loan and played 33 league matches whilst at Molineux, scoring six goals. He finished last season on loan at Blackpool.
