Shaun MacDonald: Joins Wigan

Wigan have signed Bournemouth midfielder Shaun MacDonald for an undisclosed fee.

The 28-year-old, a Wales international, underwent a medical on Friday afternoon before signing a two-year contract with the Sky Bet Championship club.

Latics boss Gary Caldwell told the club’s official website: “He is a quality addition to the squad. A terrific pro who understands the way we want to play, a skilful midfielder capable of fitting into our system.

“He is a great person too, with a great attitude who has gone through a similar experience at Bournemouth to where we are now, a team coming up from League One to the Championship and playing a certain brand of football.

“The fact he has recent international experience with Wales shows just how highly he is rated.”

The arrival of MacDonald at the DW Stadium comes a day after Wigan sold midfielder Emyr Huws to Championship rivals Cardiff.
