Wigan manager Gary Cadwell says that he is hoping to add four or five more players in the summer.
The club have only brought in former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock from Derby County on a free transfer. Even though the left back brings a lot of experience with him, Wigan could need significant strengthening in other areas of the pitch as well. of English football will be an even tougher task.
Following two quick relegations, Wigan found themselves playing in League One just a few years after having been FA Cup winners. The club, though, have been working steadily towards returning to the top of the tree.Caldwell claimed that the club have been preparing for life in the Championship for 12 months. He is confident that at least four or five new players will be joining Wigan due to the long term work that they have done in the transfer department. For the time being, though, Warnock is the only new name to offer fans some hope ahead of the new season.
In the 2015-16 campaign, Wigan managed to win the League One by some margin.“We tried to sign players last year who would not only do well in League One, but who were really Championship quality.And I’ve got real confidence that they’ll be able to do a job at this level.In football you work with what you’ve got, and we were fortunate last year in being able to go out and get the best players. And I think this year we’re going to have a group of players that are going to be coming up with momentum, with real belief in what we’re doing,” said Caldwell.
