Since joining on loan back in October the Dutch winger has become one of the most talked about players in League One. His turn of pace and power on the ball means that he is a nightmare for defences which has seen him cause havoc for Wigan.

Yanic Wildschut’s loan deal came to an end on the 2nd January with the club chasing Middlesbrough to make it permanent. The story has been that Wildschut wanted to stay with Wigan and Middlesbrough were likely to let the player leave.

Yet the north east club have been hard to pin down when it come to an agreeable fee. Well that has now all been sorted and confirmed. The agreed upon fee is believed to be in the region of £600,000 with add ons which would see the total fee rise to the £1 million mark.

The player himself has put pen to paper on a three and a half year deal with the club and will be right back in contention for the game against Sheffield United on Tuesday night. When I am sure he will be up for the fight.

Welcome back to the club Yanic!
