Anthony Pilkington has joined Wigan from Cardiff City.
The Republic of Ireland international has joined the Championship club on an 18-month dealÂ afterÂ failing to make a single appearance for Neil Warnock’s CardiffÂ side this season.
PilkingtonÂ made 111 appearances for theÂ Welsh club, netting 23 goals and winning promotion with the club last season.
TheÂ 30-year-old joined Cardiff in 2014 from Norwich, having previously represented Stockport and Huddersfield.
“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.”
