Wigan take Cardiff's Maynard on loan

Wigan Athletic have signed Cardiff City striker Nicky Maynard on loan.

The 27-year old former Bristol City ace has joined the Latics for the remainder of the season and is set to make his debut for Uwe Rosler's side at Doncaster Rovers this weekend.

"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."
