I didn't do a Scouting Report on our first summer signing, so instead I am going to take a look at just what have we signed and how he will impact on Wigan Athletic for the forth coming season and in the years to come. First of lets get the details o
Well with a deal believed to be legit over in the states I thought it was a good idea to look at what we look to be signing in the shape of the 24 year old Guatemalan international (Marco Pappa). First of all he is a midfielder which is one of the positions we do need to fill, and signing a player on a free is always nice.
Now Jamie Murphy is a player who has got bags of talent and at the age of 23, having had a great couple of seasons in the SPL, he could be ready to move up to the Premier League. He has been linked with Wigan in the past, and it looked likely last summer that he was Wigan bound before the deal fell through.
The Greek winger, has been high in the speculation for one of the players that Wigan are in the look out for this coming summer. And with Martinez out in Poland and having watched the Greek players train at least twice. The rumour could be more than just that.
Much like last season there are a lot of players that are available on a free who would actually improve the team. When you get someone on a free the money you don't use on paying for them you can use that money to increase the bag pack and make club look more attractive.
The new feature for the summer months, where once or twice a week I will be looking at who we need, and the players we have been linked with in and around the media. So to start off with I am going to take a look at each position in turn and see who we already have and where the short falls are going to be.
