Wigan Athletic confirm Tim Chow moves to Ross County.
- Tim Chow moves to Ross County on a permanent deal.
- Chow ends 11 year association with Wigan Athletic.
- “Tim is a top pro, we wish him all the best.” - Gary Caldwell.
The St Helens born midfielder travelled up to Scotland to undergo a medical and put pen to paper on the deal which will see him leave Latics having been with us for over a decade.
The 22-year-old came through the ranks at the DW from the age of 11 and made his debut in the first team in April 2015, famously scoring on his home debut at the DW Stadium against Brighton and Hove Albion to help earn Gary Caldwell his first win as a manager.
He has played 16 league games in total, 19 in all competitions, but has found opportunities limited in recent months. His final appearance in a Latics shirt came as a substitute in the victory over Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship earlier this month.
Latics manager Gary Caldwell said:
“We say goodbye to Tim with a heavy heart because he has never given me or the club less than 100%. Even at his tender age, I would call him the model professional.
“I feel a particular affinity with him as I brought him into the first team picture here, and gave him his debut and played him last season. But the reality is that he will find it hard to gain regular game time and this is the best move for him, an opportunity to really stake his claim for first team football in a really good club.
“I know the County manager Jim McIntyre well, a coach with a reputation for developing young players and Tim now has a chance to stake his claim for a regular shirt.
“We sincerely wish him all the best. I think along with every other Wigan Athletic fan, we are sad to say goodbye but we understand it’s the best solution for all concerned.”
