Wigan Athletic can confirm that Mauro Boselli has joined Italian Serie A side Palermo on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy at the end of the term.
The striker has made twelve appearances for Latics so far this season and scored four goals in all competitions, including the winner in the last round of the FA Cup against Bournemouth.
It will be the Argentine’s second spell in Italy, after a temporary period at Genoa last season which returned one league goal from six appearances.
Boselli joined Latics in 2010 from his native Estudiantes, to whom he returned for a loan spell at the beginning of the 2011/12 campaign.
In all competitions he has made 24 appearances and scored five goals
