We are delighted to announce Gavin Massey has signed for the club.
The 24 year-old underwent a medical at the DW Stadium this week and has put pen to paper on a two year deal at Latics.
He is a free agent after exercising an option to leave Leyton Orient.
Massey has already played 225 league games in his career for Orient, Colchester United, Yeovil Town and Watford, where he initially came through the ranks to make his professional debut at the age of 17.
He scored eight goals in 36 league appearances for The O’s last season and Latics manager Paul Cook sees him as a great addition.
He said: “Gavin is a player we feel can do really well for us.
“He played against Portsmouth twice last season and scored a great goal at Fratton Park. He’s quick, strong and committed and can operate anywhere across the front three.
“For a player of his age, he has a lot of experience and has played a lot in this division. He adds great competition to the squad.”
Massey featured against Latics in the 3-3 draw at the Colchester Community Stadium in March 2016, alongside current midfielder Alex Gilbey.
