Wigan Athletic are delighted to announce that Callum McManaman has agreed a contract extension which will see him remain at the club until 2017.
The new deal comes after the attacker’s exceptional finish to last season, in which he was awarded the Man of the Match in the FA Cup Final and scored his first league goal for the club against Tottenham Hotspur in April.
The 22-year old has now made 33 league appearances for Wigan Athletic since making his debut in league competition back in May 2009 against Portsmouth at the JJB Stadium.
In March of this year he made his full league debut in the 2-1 home win over Newcastle United, and ended last term with six goals in all competitions.
Speaking of the deal, Manager Owen Coyle said:
“It’s great news, and a sign of our intent to secure the long term future of Wigan Athletic. We want to keep hold of our best young talents, and Callum certainly represents that.
“He is an integral part of our plans now, and what we want to build at the club moving forwards with players like Callum a key part of that.”
McManaman himself said: “I’m delighted to get my future sorted. This is where I made my debut and got my break in football and I just want to thank the Manager for having faith in me.
"A big thanks to the Wigan fans as well, for their support in every game, it makes a big difference to me and makes my family so proud. It means so much.
“Now I just need to get my head down, keep working hard and hopefully keep my place in the team and do everything I can to help the team be successful.”
