Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is convinced of the impact Shaun Maloney can make this season.

Martinez believes the Scotland international could be a key signing.

He said: "His technical ability is phenomenal. He's going to have a massive role in our squad.

"I don't think homesickness will be an issue. His sister is in Nottingham and he's not far away from some of the Scottish boys."
