Wigan's style of football persuaded McCarthy

New Wigan signing James McCarthy chose the Latics over Wolves because of their style of football. The 18 year old was tempted by Wolves but is convinced he made the right decision after speaking with Latics boss Roberto Martinez and his assistant Graeme Jones.

"For a Premier League team to come after you is a dream come true," he told Sky Sports News.

"I went down to Wolves and had a look about. It was a great place and they treated me well but because I know Graeme and I think Wigan are a great club, I just wanted to come here.

"Speaking to the manager and Graeme Jones, the way they play I think it will suit my style.

"I just need to keep my head down, work away and try and get in the squad."
