Latics complete McArthur signing

BY foxsports • July 23, 2010

The Scotland Under-21 international follows the same path as fellow midfielder James McCarthy, who left Accies for Wigan last summer. Wigan manager Roberto Martinez said: "James is a really exciting prospect and we are all delighted that he has chosen to join Wigan Athletic. "We are building a squad here at the DW and I see James as being another real quality addition who will add great competition in the midfield areas. "He is young, hungry, desperate to play for us in the Premier League and I believe he has all the attributes you need to be a success at this level." McArthur's arrival is the second to be confirmed by Wigan in the space of two days after Paraguay international Antolin Alcaraz received a work permit on Thursday.
