Callum McManaman: Has signed a new contract

The 22-year-old, who has made 33 league appearances for the club, is now tied to the Championship outfit until 2017.

McManaman, a relation to former England, Liverpool and Real Madrid star Steve, made a huge impact at Wigan last season, playing a major part in their FA Cup triumph.

Wigan boss Owen Coyle was delighted to see McManaman sign and he told the club's website: "It's great news, and a sign of our intent to secure the long term future of Wigan Athletic.

"We want to keep hold of our best young talents, and Callum certainly represents that.

"He is an integral part of our plans now, and what we want to build at the club moving forwards with players like Callum a key part of that."

McManaman added: "I'm delighted to get my future sorted. This is where I made my debut and got my break in football and I just want to thank the Manager for having faith in me.

"A big thanks to the Wigan fans as well, for their support in every game, it makes a big difference to me and makes my family so proud. It means so much.

"Now I just need to get my head down, keep working hard and hopefully keep my place in the team and do everything I can to help the team be successful."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
