SIGNING: Striker Signs On Season-Long Loan

13 July 2016

Northern Ireland international striker Billy Mckay has signed on a season-long loan from Wigan Athletic.

Mckay is the seventh player to join the club since the arrival of new manager Steve Robinson on Saturday.

The 27-year-old started his career with Premier League champions Leicester City before moving to Northampton Town on a permanent deal.

After scoring 16 goals in 82 appearances in all competitions, Mckay left Northampton for north of the border.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle was a happy home for the striker as he netted 62 goals in 141 games during a four year spell.

That earned him a move to Wigan Athletic for a six-figure fee but he quickly moved back to Scotland to join Dundee United.

Mckay again enjoyed a successful spell scoring 13 goals in 35 games last season.

The striker has been capped nine times by his country but has yet to find the net for Northern Ireland.

Welcome to the club, Billy!
