The January transfer window has now closed and with plenty of activity coming in and going out of the club, this week's episode of Latics Listen brings everything together in one place.

Latics icon Paul Scharner joins Guy Clarke on the line to take us through what it's like to move in the January transfer window, not once, but twice! The Austrian, now playing in the fifth tier in his native country, explained how he had to wait two days to go through his medical at Latics due to the excitement of moving the the Premier League increasing his blood pressure.

We also sat down with Darron Gibson to discuss recent results and performances, experienced additions over the past week and the midfielder's personal circumstances and how he's enjoying his football and life at the club.

And finally, Harry Aitkenhead from our official partners Coral brings the latest Championship chatter and odds ahead of the weekend's game against Queens Park Rangers.
