Manager Richie Wellens believes new signing Patrick McEleney will make a huge impact at the club.
McEleney signed a two-and-a-half year contract with Latics and the manager believes he is a talented player and happy to get the deal sorted.
He said: “He’s two footed, he can go either way and he can dribble past players and I think we’ve lacked a bit of that.
“We’ve got really good footballers who get in pockets of space and Patrick will give us a different dimension.
“He can go past players, he can score goals and he’s got good delivery as well.
“He’s a player that I’m looking forward to working with and he’s the type of character you want in the building.”
