WIGAN Athletic have cancelled defender Ivan Ramis’ contract and allowed him to join Spanish outfit Levante.

The 30-year-old, whose current deal was due to expire this summer, joined Latics in 2012 but has seen much of his career at the DW Stadium hampered by injury.

Ramis expressed a desire to leave the club and manager Malky Mackay agreed to terminate his deal.

Mackay said: “Ivan asked if there was a chance he could go back to Spain because he sees his life back there again. He’s not playing at the moment and is out of contract in the summer and we felt that in both our interests, this was the best solution to go to Levante.

“The contract has been cancelled by mutual consent and I want to say good luck to him, he is a good professional and he goes with the warmest regards of everyone at Wigan Athletic.”
