Bouaouzan leaves Latics

Latics' Dutch winger Rachid Bouaouzan has agreed a one year loan deal with NEC Nijmegen.

Bouaouzan has agreed the move prior to this evening's transfer deadline, a year after joining Latics from Sparta Rotterdam.

The 24-year-old made just one appearance in a Wigan Athletic shirt, coming on as a substitute in last week's 4-0 victory in the Carling Cup over Notts County.

Manager Steve Bruce said: "I do feel for Rachid, because it has been frustrating for him. I hope he has success back in Holland this season."
