Wigan announce profit for first time in six years

Wigan Athletic have announced a net profit of £4.3m for the year ending 31 May.

It is the first time in six years that the club have turned in a profit and it represents a big turnaround in their financial situation after they reported a £7.2m loss 12 months ago.

Wigan said on their official website that, while salaries remain their biggest expense, they had trimmed them from £39.9m to £37.7m, with £10.4m spent on new players.

The sale of winger Charles N'Zogbia to Aston Villa meant they brought in £7.9m of profit on player sales.
