TIM Chow has put pen to paper on a new two-year contract with Wigan Athletic.

The 21-year-old was released towards the end of last term before being brought back in to the fold after Gary Caldwell took over.

After an encouraging series of performances in the run-in, Chow has done enough to warrant the offer of a new contract.

And Caldwell admits the midfielder has it in him to be ‘a big part’ of Wigan’s attempts to get out of League One at the first attempt next term.

“We’re all really pleased Tim has committed his future to the club,” said Caldwell.

“Tim is a good young footballer who has all the attributes to be a big part of what we’re doing here.

“Credit to him, he took his chance at the end of last season and he was given that chance because of his application and the way he trained and he provides a good example to all of our young players of what is required.”
