Wigan complete McClean deal

Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of James McClean from Sunderland, Sky Sports understands.

The 24 year old was brought to England by Steve Bruce in 2011, but didn’t break into the Black Cats first team until Martin O’Neill was appointed manager at the Stadium of Light.

He made forty-one appearances last season – scoring five goals – but has been allowed to move on following the large influx of new blood on Wearside this summer.

The former Derry City man becomes Owen Coyle’s tenth signing since talking charge of the Latics, and could make his debut at Wembley on Sunday, when the Championship club face Premier League champions Manchester United in the Community Shield.

He has been capped fourteen times for the Republic of Ireland and has, along with new teammate James McArthy, been named in Giovanni Trapattoni’s squad for next week’s friendly against Wales at the Cardiff City Stadium.
