Kirkland commits to Wigan

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan says Chris Kirkland is the "best goalkeeper in Europe" - and the England man intends to repay that faith.

"I've got tingles now just thinking about what he said," Kirkland responded. "Hopefully I can be here for many more years.

"[The chairman's] been great with me for bringing me to the club and I include Paul Jewell in that as he took a chance on me when no-one else would.

"I want to repay Wigan by hopefully staying fit and having a good run over the next few years."
