Latics Land Scottish Star

Wigan have completed the signing of Aberdeen teenager Fraser Fyvie, for an undisclosed fee on a 3 year deal, becoming the first signing of the summer.

Martinez beat off rivals Fulham to the signature of the 19 year old, who has captained Scotland at various age levels.

With his contract ending in January, Aberdeen have decided to cash in on their academy grown player, who made his first team debut at only 16.

Fyvie's arrival will add much needed cover for the midfield, after the departure of Mohamed Diame on a free at the end of the season. 

Martinez was delighted at his latest recruit from North of the border: "Technically he's very gifted, enjoys playing in midfield where he can cover large areas, he's very powerful off the ball and in possession is someone who can read the tempo of the game very well."

Despite his tender age he has gained a lot of exposure in the top flight in Scotland something, Martinez believes will allow Fyvie to settle in quickly: "Also you have to remember that for such a young player he's played a lot of games in the Scottish Premier League at a high standard which shows maturity."

He joins a growing group of fellow Scot’s plying their trade at the DW Stadium, with Gary Caldwell James McArthur and Shaun Maloney already on board.

With the future’s of a number of the current squad still to be decided, Latics fans can expect to see a few player head for the exit doors. Although Martinez will be keen to add further cover to both his defensive and forward line, before the start of their eighth campaign in the Premier League.
