Wigan outcast Kapo completes Boulogne move

Boulogne have signed Wigan Athletic midfielder Olivier Kapo on-loan to the end of the season.

Boulogne have signed Wigan Athletic midfielder Olivier Kapo on-loan to the end of the season.

The move sees Kapo return to France three-and-a-half years after he last played in Ligue 1 for Monaco.

The former France international moved to Wigan from Birmingham in 2008, but has played just 20 Barclays Premier League games for the Latics.

"I want to fight as I did at Wigan," said Kapo. "I can't wait to sense the smell of the dressing room and above all the smell of victory with Boulogne.

"I have the fortune that a top-flight team put out their hand to me and I seized it.

"Not knowing too much about the club, I found out about it by asking other players.

"They all only told me good things about it. So didn't hesitate long before signing. I really hope we are going to stay up. It's feasible. In any case, I'm really happy to be here."
