Latics manager Paul Cook has described new signing Noel Hunt as ‘a top pro.’

Hunt joined Latics earlier today on a season-long deal after a trial period at the club.

He was with Paul Cook at Portsmouth last season, appearing 24 times.

Cook said: “Noel is a top pro whose experience, commitment and quality has already started rubbing off on the squad. He’s a player who trains as he plays, at 100 per cent level, and he will make a significant contribution on and off the field.”
