Andrew Taylor checks in at Wigan Athletic

3 June 2014

Wigan Athletic have made Cardiff City left-back Andrew Taylor their first signing of the summer.

The 27-year-old, who has signed a three-year deal with the Latics, spent three years in the Welsh capital and made 18 appearances last season as the Bluebirds suffered relegation from the Premier League.

Wigan boss Uwe Rosler told their official website: "I'm very, very happy to get a player of Andrew's stature and experience to our football club.

"He was the captain of Malky Mackay's promotion-winning team, he is a very experienced and reliable player who is at the best stage of his career and I'm looking forward to working with him.

"He has all the qualities in his position that we are looking for; physically, technically he's very good and tactically he has developed as a player well.

"He's willing to go forward, participating in our play offensively and he's another cornerstone in our team for next season."

Taylor added: "Wigan Athletic are a big club, with Premier League experience and big aspirations," he added.

"The manager seems really good and I think his record when he came to the club last season speaks volumes.

"It's a fresh challenge for me and one I'm very excited about; I had three good years at Cardiff but everything has to come to an end and I'm looking forward to getting started at the DW Stadium."
