Fortune becomes Wigan’s sixth summer signing

Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of striker Marc-Antoine Fortune, according to Sky Sports News.

The Frenchman has put pen to paper on a two-year deal after his contract with West Bromwich Albion came to an end.

Fortune scored eleven Premier League goals in two spells with the Baggies, spending six months on loan during the 2008/09 campaign before signing permanently from Celtic in August 2010.

He becomes new manager Owen Coyle’s sixth signing of the summer, following former West Brom teammate Scott Carson, James Perch, Chris McCann, Stephen Crainey and Thomas Rogne, who he played with during his time in Scotland.

The 32 year old is seen as an ideal replacement for Ivory Coast international Arouna Kone, who is expected to be leaving the DW Stadium in the next few days.

Both Everton and Newcastle United have met the release clause of around £6million in the 29 year olds contract.
