  • Fox says he will bring a ‘desire and will to win’ to the Wigan Athletic dressing room
  • Fox: “I think I will bring experience to the dressing room; we have a few young lads who probably need a bit of guidance and older pros like myself can help with that in the dressing room.”

Wigan Athletic’s latest recruit Danny Fox has said he will bring experience for Latics’ squad after completing his move from Nottingham Forest to the DW Stadium.

Fox, 32, has played over 450 career games, a good percentage of which have come in the Championship and Premier League.

And he says he hopes to give Latics’ squad some added experience.

“I will bring a little bit of experience from playing in this league for quite a long time and I have played at big clubs like Nottingham Forest and Celtic,” Fox explained.

“So I think I will bring experience to the dressing room; we have a few young lads who probably need a bit of guidance and older pros like myself can help with that in the dressing room.

“I’ll have a will to win and a desire to get results for Wigan Athletic.”

The move has been mooted for some time during the January Transfer Window and Fox says getting it completed is pleasing and he’s excited to get to work with his new teammates.

“I am delighted to be here,” Fox continued. “It has been on the cards for a few weeks now with the clubs working together to get a deal done.

“I know some of the players from either playing with them or against them over the years and from what I have seen today it is a great group of lads and the staff seem really good as well.

“I know Anthony Barry [first team coach] really well personally from playing with him as a kid at Liverpool and Everton so it all fits well and I am really, really happy to be here.”

And Fox says the move to the DW ‘ticked all the boxes’ for him as he commits his future to Latics after leaving the City Ground, where he played 127 times over five years and been captain.

“There has been changes at Nottingham Forest recently and this move came up and ticked all the boxes for me personally,” Fox continued.

“I am only hearing good things about the manager and his staff here and knowing that we have got some really talented players here as well made it a no-brainer for me to get the deal done.”
