Wigan Athletic are delighted to confirm the permanent signing of Danny Fox from Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.
Fox, 32, has over 450 career appearances to his name, and brings a wealth of experience to Latics’ backline, having featured in the UEFA Champions League, Premier League and Championship.
A former Everton trainee, Fox made his EFL bow with Walsall before progressing through the divisions via Coventry City, Burnley, Southampton and latterly Nottingham Forest. He also had a brief spell with Celtic in 2009, in which time he played with former Latics Shaun Maloney and Gary Caldwell.
Speaking about Fox’s arrival, Latics boss Paul Cook said:
“Danny has great experience in the Premier League and Championship and is a great addition to our squad.
“Great credit to Danny for joining us after captaining Nottingham Forest in their promotion push in the Championship.
“I think our supporters would appreciate that leadership and experience amongst our very young back five has been something we have been searching for and we are delighted to have found it in Danny.”
