Wigan take Cardiff's Maynard on loan
"Nicky is at the stage of his career where he wants to play regular football again after his injury last season. He wants to prove a point to himself and also to the people," Rosler told the club's official website of the former Crewe Alexandra and West Ham United forward.
"That's a perfect scenario for us; it matches our ambitions. We want to prove a point, we want to go up, we want to into the play offs and I think we can give him the platform to perform again.
"I will be patient with him because he has not played in a while. But, he's fit, and he's ready to go."
