Since their Championship promotion this season, Wigan have only added one fresh face to their squad during the transfer window. That man, Ryan Nyambe, has yet to feature for the club too and it means that the Latics are largely playing right now with the same first-team squad that won the League One title. However, before the window shuts, boss Leam Richardson should ensure he brings in a few more signings to the DW Stadium to make sure the club are able to stay in the division.
One player the Latics could try and pick up in a bit of a bargain deal is Joe Ward from Peterborough United. With the player having already played plenty of games in both the Championship and League One, he has the knowhow and experience for Wigan to benefit from having him in their squad. He’s versatile, so could fill a few positions of need, and he’s also capable of a few goals in a team too.Jake Doyle-Hayes – Hibernian
Signing this player would be a bit more of a gamble by Wigan but it could pay off and could be another cheap deal for the club. Jake Doyle-Hayes plays his football in Scotland currently with Hibernian but has shown flashes of his brilliance in the Scottish Premier League. The midfielder was a regular feature in their side last season with 34 league outings and two assists and he would come into the Wigan team and provide some depth in the centre of the field.
If the Latics want to look closer to home for a new option in midfield, they could sign up Regan Hendry from Forest Green Rovers. He’s never played Championship football but has impressed in League Two and has already got off to a solid start in League One too.
