Wigan have signed former Sheffield Wednesday loanee James Tavernier from Newcastle for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old James Tavernier, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Rotherham United, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
“It has been a long summer and I’ve been waiting a long time to finalise the deal,” Tavernier told Wigan’s official website.
“Now that it has been completed, I’m delighted.
“Wigan Athletic are a Premier League club and I’ve always known them to be a Premier League club and hopefully I can help get us back where we belong.”
The Bradford-born full-back progressed through Newcastle’s youth system and has also had loan spells at Carlisle, Wednesday, (2011-12) MK Dons and Shrewsbury.
He scored five goals for Rotherham.
