WIGAN Athletic have unveiled striker Andy Delort as their latest signing.

The Frenchman was introduced to the DW Stadium crowd ahead of the game with Birmingham City this afternoon (Saturday).

He will officially put pen to paper on his Latics contract this Monday.

A number of clubs were chasing the 22-year-old’s signature but Uwe Rosler has struck a deal and he’ll be in contention for the next game away at Blackburn on September 13.

Within a couple of hours of being paraded at the DW though, the president of Delort’s current club Tours in France released a statement saying: “Despite new rumours about Andy Delort in England, I reiterate that no decision has yet been made as to the final destination and the player returns to the previous statement posted on our site.”
