WIGAN Athletic have completed the signing of Will Grigg from Brentford for around £1million.

The 24-year-old, who scored 22 goals on loan at MK Dons last term, was the subject of an unsuccessful bid from Latics last week.

But chairman David Sharpe has gone back with an improved offer that has been accepted by the Bees.

Grigg’s former club, Walsall, are in line for a 20 per cent sell-on as part of the deal.

The Northern Ireland international is not in the squad for tonight’s game at Altrincham, but could make his debut at Southport on Saturday.
