WIGAN Athletic have confirm the signing of Honduras international defender Juan Carlos Garcia, on a three-year-deal.

The 25-year-old joins Latics on a free transfer after three years spent at native club Olimpia, a production line also responsible for Maynor Figueroa, Wilson Palacios and Hendry Thomas.

“Juan is a very talented player, a left-back, powerful and someone we’re very happy to be bringing to the squad,” said boss Owen Coyle.

“He scored a tremendous goal for his country not too long ago so it’s nice that he’s got an attacking mind in his locker.

“But obviously he’s coming in for his defensive abilities, which will bring a lot to the group.”
