Sheffield United made a swift transfer decision over the course of the last 48 hours, with Lee Evans departing the club.
The midfielder has today linked up with Wigan Athletic across the Sky Bet Championship, joining the club on-loan initially before making that deal permanent in January.
The midfielder had started Sheffield United’s first two Championship fixtures and was a regular last season following his arrival at Bramall Lane from Wolves, but Chris Wilder has made the decision to move the Welshman on.
Evans, 24, has taken to his personal Twitter account to deliver a message to Sheffield United, thanking the club for his time there, before wishing everyone the best for the future.
Want to take this opportunity to thank everyone at @SUFC_tweets for my time at the club! It was an honour for me to play for the club and I wish everyone at the club the best for the future!
