WIGAN Athletic have confirmed the signing of defender Andrew Taylor on a three-year-deal.
The left-back joins from Cardiff City with whom he played for more than 40 times in their 2013 Championship winning season.
He has struggled to find a place in the Premier League though and joins for an undisclosed fee. He did face Wigan in the FA Cup fifth round in South Wales in February, which Latics won 2-1.
Taylor, 27, has also played for Middlesbrough, Bradford and Watford and becomes Uwe Rosler’s first signing of the summer.
His preferred position of left-wing-back is the same as current Latics players Stephen Crainey and Jean Beausejour, who are both out of contract at the DW Stadium.
Latics boss Rosler said: “I’m very, very happy to get a player of Andrew’s stature and experience to our football club. He’s a leader, someone who can take responsibility on the field.”
