Lowly Latics land another Caldwell

The 29-year-old has been on the lookout for a new club since
leaving Burnley and has now linked up with brother Gary at the DW
Stadium. Wigan have endured a difficult start to the campaign after
following up their 4-0 thrashing by Blackpool with a 6-0 thumping
from Chelsea. Caldwell has been training with Wigan in recent weeks
and clearly made a favourable impression on under-fire manager
Roberto Martinez. Martinez believes he has landed a leader on and
off the pitch and feels his experience will prove invaluable to the
cause. “We have seen what Steven is all about during his time
here,” he told the club’s official website. “He’s a leader on and
off the field and he is a great personality to have in the dressing
room. “He has shown real professionalism in his time with us and we
are delighted to have him on board. “He has good experience of the
Premier League and has played in the Champions League and UEFA Cup,
plus is a full Scotland international. “He is a totally committed
defender who will add fantastic competition to the squad.” Caldwell
is thrilled to have linked up with his brother at Wigan and admits
Gary has given positive reviews of the Lancashire side. “Gary has
of course told me what the club is like and how impressed he has
been with the set-up here, and I am delighted to have sorted out my
future now,” said Steven. “I have already got to know the lads over
the past few weeks and I can’t wait to get started and fight for my
place.”
