Mike Pollitt has penned a new 12-month contract with Wigan Athletic.

The 40 year-old was the club's first Premier League signing in 2005 and, with his current short-term deal - signed last summer - due to expire, he has been handed an extension for a further 12 months.

"Above all Mike is a fantastic goalkeeper, whose experience and professionalism sets a high standard in training every day," manager Roberto Martinez told wiganlatics.co.uk.

"He has had to be patient for opportunities on the pitch, but his commitment is never questioned and for the younger members of our squad he remains the example to follow, and we're delighted to have him with us next season."
