DONE DEAL: Ben Amos rejects Man Utd for Wigan move

Ben Amos has joined Wigan Athletic after turning down a return to Manchester United.

The 31-year-old was a free agent after allowing his contract to run down at Charlton Athletic, who were keen to re-sign him this summer.

Amos also rejected the option of returning to Manchester United as cover as he wanted to continue playing regular football, says the Daily Mail.

Ipswich Town manager Paul Cook also showed an interest, but Wigan have stepped in with a three-year contract for the former England Under-21 international and his signing will be confirmed on Sunday.

Amos was an ever-present for Charlton last season, making 46 appearances and keeping 17 clean sheets.
