Northern Ireland international striker makes permanent switch to Scotland.

  • Billy Mckay moves to Ross County.
  • Mckay has been on loan at Dundee United, Oldham Athletic and Inverness Caledonian Thistle during his Latics stay.
  • Mckay played ten times for Latics, without scoring.

Wigan Athletic can confirm that striker Billy Mckay has left the club to join Ross County on a permanent basis.

The 28-year-old was signed from Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January 2015 but struggled to make an impression at the DW Stadium and spent the majority of both the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons on loan at Dundee United, Oldham Athletic and back with Inverness respectively.

He made his Latics debut as a late substitute in a 0-0 draw at Portman Road against Ipswich Town in January 2015 and made a total of eight appearances that season, all as a substitute apart from the final day defeat at Brentford. His last appearance for Latics was at Gillingham in August 2015.
