Wigan target Roger Espinoza given green light to join Premier League
Monday 17 December 2012
Roger Espinoza, the Honduras midfielder, will join Wigan in January after being granted permission to work in the UK.
A decision by a Football Association panel gave the 26-year-old the all-clear to join the club when his contract with MLS side Sporting Kansas City expires at the end of December.
Roberto Martinez, the Wigan manager, said: "It is great news for us that he can now join up in January.
"He is a player we have been following closely since June 2010, when he made his debut in the World Cup versus Chile."
