​DONE DEAL: Cardiff winger Pilkington joins Wigan

Cardiff star Anthony Pilkington has signed for Wigan on an 18-month deal.

The 30-year-old has not played a single game this season and is now leaving the Welsh side after being there for the past four and a half years.

He managed 23 goals in 111 appearances for the team.

But he will be at Wigan for the next 18 months, where he hopes to get back into regular first team contention.

Wigan boss Paul Cook said in a statement: "Anthony has good experience in the Championship and Premier League, I am delighted to bring him to Wigan Athletic.

"He won promotion with Cardiff City last season so he knows what it takes to do well at this level and I am sure he will be a big asset to us for the rest of this campaign and beyond."
