Wigan Athletic have signed midfielder Josh Laurent on from Hartlepool United for an undisclosed fee.

The 21 year-old has undergone a medical today and put pen to paper on a two and a half year deal that keeps him at the club until the summer of 2019. 

Warren Joyce said: “Josh is a player the club has been watching all season and we feel he has the potential to shine at a higher level of football, given the right environment and the time in which to develop.  He’s a powerful, ball-playing midfielder and we welcome him to the squad."

The Londoner began his career at Queens Park Rangers, then signed for Brentford in 2015, before moving to the north-east  a year ago. He has played 33 times for Pools, scoring once. He also had loan spells at Newport County and Braintree Town.
