Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of Wolves midfielder Lee Evans on a season-long loan deal.

The 23-year-old Wales Under-21 international had slipped down the pecking order at Molineux in recent weeks.

And he has jumped at the chance to join Latics under the watchful eye of Paul Cook, himself a former Latics and Wolves midfielder.

“Lee’s a classy player and somebody who has been playing at a good level for a number of years,” said Cook.

“We do have a number of players in midfield at the moment but I feel you can never be too strong in that department, especially over the course of a season in which we’re going to play over 50 games.

“I am sure once he’s settled in, Lee is the type of player the fans will really warm to.”
