Wigan Athletic have announced on their official website that they have completed a late deadline day deal to bring Omar Bogle to the club.

Omar Bogle joins Wigan from Grimsby Town, subject to EFL clearance, for an undisclosed fee.

The goal scoring centre forward has made a name for himself in the Football League this season, scoring 19 League Two goals.

Wigan were one of many clubs interested in Bogle and they have beaten off plenty of competition to land his services.

The 23-year-old pens a two and half year deal with the Latics after joining just before the January transfer window slammed shut.

The former Celtic, Birmingham and West Brom trainee has had to ply his trade in non-league before earning his chance to move up in the football pyramid.

Bogle started his senior career at Hinckley United before spending 3 years at Solihull Moors.

He then joined Grimsby in June 2015 and scored 2 goals in the National League play-off final to help the Mariners win promotion back to the football league.

Wigan fans – are you pleased with this signing? Can Bogle score the goals to keep you up? Is he a good replacement for Wildschut? Let us know in the comments below…
