The January transfer window is well underway now and plenty of Championship clubs have started to sign players.
It’s a big moment in the season for many sides – particularly in the second tier – thanks to the raw competitive nature of the division.
For sure, it seems as though getting the right players in this year could really impact on a club’s finish and so Wigan will be pleased that they appear to have beaten Ipswich to a signing.
Indeed, the Latics have, according to Pete O’Rourke, taken Anthony Pilkington from under the noses of Ipswich Town:

The winger has been struggling for minutes for Cardiff City for some time and it seems as though he is now going to link up with Paul Cook, rather than Paul Lambert.
This will be a boost for Wigan as they look to get themselves safe in the Sky Bet Championship.
They need experience and it seems as though Cook is well aware of bringing that in during this month’s window.
Meanwhile, Ipswich look set to miss out on the former Norwich man and so Lambert will have to work hard to try and get something sorted before the end of the transfer window.
