Wigan snaps up Beausejour


Wigan have completed the signing of Chile midfielder Jean Beausejour from Birmingham.

The 27-year-old has joined for an undisclosed fee, agreeing a two-and-a-half-year contract with the relegation-threatened Premier League club.

The Wigan manager, Roberto Martinez, said: "Jean is a player we have been tracking for a long time since he made a huge impression on us with his role for Chile in the World Cup. His dynamism, technical ability and tactical concepts will bring a different dimension into our squad."
