Leon Balogun signs permanent deal with Wigan

Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun has signed a permanent deal with Wigan Athletic where he was on a loan deal.

The 31-year old helped the Championship side move from the relegation zone and helped them enjoy four clean sheets in six games.

He has now agreed to a permanent deal with Wigan after moving from Brighton and Hove Albion where he fell from first-team appearances.

Albion boss Graham Potter said, “Leon has always been extremely professional and good to work with during my time at the club, but he was finding it hard to get the game time he would have liked.

“So the loan move to Wigan seemed to be a good move for everyone involved, and he has made a really positive impact there.

“We would like to thank him for his contribution over the last couple of years and we wish him all the best for the next chapter of his career.”
