Adam Bogdan: Wigan's new arrival

Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan has joined Championship side Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan deal.

The 28-year-old Hungarian international reportedly had a medical with the Latics yesterday and the deal is now complete.

Bogdan’s place in Liverpool’s squad looked increasingly under threat since the signing of German goalkeeper Loris Karius from Mainz, and has been let go in order to gain regular football.

He joined Liverpool last summer but struggled to gain football and notably made a howler in their 3-0 defeat to Watford last December.

His short-lived career at Liverpool saw him only play six times.

However, Wigan boss Gary Caldwell is in no doubt about the quality of his signing.

“He has great experience and will add immense competition for both Jussi Jaaskelainen and Lee Nicholls, which is what you need to drive the club forwards.

“He obviously knows Jussi from his time at Bolton, he knows the area, the training ground is familiar to him and I’m sure he will be a great addition to the squad.”

Liverpool may look to replace Bogdan with another stopper, with Alex Manninger training at Melwood with the squad.
