Jamie McGrath in the door. Two and a half year deal from St Mirren.

One and a half million reasons to love Dan Burn...but on a personal level, chuffed to bits for him...chatting many times at Euxton, never made any secret of his love for Newcastle and regret he never ‘made it’ there...lovely fella, dream come true...what it’s all about.

With Latics in line for between 15-20 per cent of the £9million profit...that’s just over £1.5million into the Latics coffers...


...why the deadline has to be 11pm...same every January and August...surely 5pm would be more sensible...maybe Papa John’s and Domino’s are involved..


“It hasn’t quite worked out for me at Wigan and I’m at a stage in my career where I feel it’s vital for me to play every week.

“I’ve had a really tough six months at Wigan on the field. You try and leave your problems in football but it can get carried home with you.

“I’m delighted to put that behind me now and look forward to the future.”
