Versatile left-sided player who is set for second spell under Paul Cook after signing for Latics from Portsmouth in the summer of 2018.

Left-sided player Kal Naismith signed for Latics from Portsmouth on a three-year-contract in the summer of 2018.

Glasgow-born Naismith was a graduate of Rangers' academy and went on to play 24 first team games for the Ibrox club, scoring three goals.

Brief loan spells with Cowdenbeath and Partick Thistle were also part of Naismith's development before he signed permanently with League Two Accrington Stanley in 2013.

14 goals in 79 appearances for Stanley followed before Paul Cook's Portsmouth brought him to Fratton Park in 2015.

In helping Pompey win promotion to League One, Naismith's three years on the South Coast returned 93 appearances and 21 goals.

Naismith has also won Scotland U16 and U17 honours.
