Wigan Athletic land Lopez

Wigan have confirmed the signing of Adrian Lopez after receiving international clearance for the Spain Under-21 defender to play in England.

The 23-year-old exercised his option to move as a free agent after his contract at Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna expired at the end of last season, and has now been given the go-ahead from world governing body FIFA.

Lopez, also known by his nickname of 'Piscu' in Spain, has penned a deal which will keep him at the DW Stadium for the rest of the season.

Jordan Rhodes and Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors to Elland Road on Saturday.
