However, the move was held up due to the finances involved - with Latics owing his former club, Rangers, £500,000 from his transfer in 2018.

That has now been ironed out, and Windass joins the long list of first-teamers to have left Latics since the end of last term.

He's believed to have signed a two-year deal, with an option for a third year.
