Perch has signed a four-year deal after Newcastle accepted an undisclosed bid and becomes Owen Coyle's fourth signing as Wigan boss.

The 27-year-old, who can play in defence or midfield, leaves Tyneside three years after he arrived from Nottingham Forest.

He told the Wigan website: "It feels great to be here with a new challenge ahead of me, and I'm very excited at getting that started.

"The prospect of helping to get the team promoted was really appealing and I can't wait to meet the rest of the boys and get started.

"I think Wigan Athletic is a great club and after speaking with the manager, his ambition and determination to take the club back to the Premier League where it belongs is something I wanted to be a part of."

Perch joins fellow new boys Chris McCann, Thomas Rogne and Stephen Crainey at the DW Stadium ahead of the Championship season.

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
