Confirmed Transfer: Martyn Waghorn Joins on Loan from Leicester City

Wigan Athletic have completed their first signing of deadline day with Leicester City striker Martyn Waghorn signing on loan till the end of the season.

We needed strikers in this window, especially when Grant Holt was allowed to go to Aston Villa on loan. Since then we have wrapped up the signing of Nicky Maynard and now we have completed the loan signing of Martyn Waghorn till the end of the season from Leicester City.

The 24 year old striker who started his career at Sunderland will hopefully add an extra dynamic to the side. Not prolific in front of goal. Used mostly as an impact player he has some real pace and energy and matches perfectly into the mold of a Uwe Rosler kind of player.

Hungry to prove himself hopefully Waghorn will be a hit at Wigan and can get some goal that the side is in desperate need of.
