League One promotion hopefuls Wigan Athletic have snapped up St Mirren Jamie McGrath have signed a two-year and a half contract with the club. The Latics snapped up the player who had just six months left on his contract from the Scottish side. St Mirren had been keen to tie the player on a new contract but had to accept losing him now instead of being a free agent in the summer.
Jamie McGrath who has had a sort of revival over the last year, got his first call up to the Irish National team last year. The 25-year-old ended the year by making 6 appearances as Ireland tried to fight for a spot at the world cup later in the year. The player made his football debut for St. Patrick Athletic where he won back-to-back League Cups in 2015 and 2016. He won the Club’s Young Player of the year in 2016 before being snapped up at Dundalk.
