You’re a massive part of why we are back in the champ Josh. Leader on and off the pitch. Set the tempo so often last season. Top man 🖤🧡

Best of Josh Magennis was towards the end last season. Scored a streak of crucial goals to get us the title. (and for one of the worst penalties I've ever seen….)
Aside from that his efforts are appreciated and I wish him well at Wigan.

Top man. Great servant to the club and I wish him nothing but the best. Sad to see him leave.

All the best Josh, led the line brilliantly last season and one of the main reasons we came back as Champions. If we're being honest League 1 is a good level for him, Championship just a little bit too far a step up. He'll do well at Wigan, good luck…..

Massive thanks to the big man, led the line brilliantly last year, always brilliant with young fans and a great asset in the dressing room. Hope it works out for you in Wigan.
