WIGAN Athletic have announced that Callum McManaman has committed his future to the club by signing a contract extension which will see him remain at the DW Stadium until 2016.

The 21-year-old put pen to paper on the new three-year deal 24 hours before Latics are due to face Macclesfield Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup, and was delighted to extend his stay at the club where he began his professional career, saying: “It was an easy decision to be honest, never in doubt and I was just made up to get it signed and completed.

“The club is very important to me; when Everton let me go earlier in my career Wigan Athletic were the ones who gave me the opportunity and I owe it to the club to stay loyal.

“It was the best thing that happened for my career; I’ve loved every minute of it so far and I’m still enjoying it now.

“I want to keep improving, keep making appearances and maybe get more starts under my belt. Hopefully in time that will come because I believe there is a lot more to come from me.”
