Wigan Athletic land William Kvist

1 September 2014

Wigan Athletic have made Denmark international William Kvist their third signing of deadline day on a free transfer.

The 29-year-old midfielder, who had a loan spell at Fulham last season, joins from German Bundesliga side Stuttgart and will stay with the Latics until the summer of 2015.

Latics boss Uwe Rosler told the club's official website: "William is a player I know from my time in Norway, when Lillestrom faced Copenhagen in the Scandinavian Royal League final.

"He is a top international midfielder in the prime of his career and we are absolutely delighted to be able to sign him.

"He knows the football culture in this country having played here for Fulham last season and we are fortunate that we have been able to get him at this stage of his career.

"He will add great experience, knowledge of the position and of course competition in our midfield area. We are delighted to bring him on board."

Kvist, currently preparing with the Danish national team to face Turkey on Wednesday, follows Adam Forshaw and Andy Delort through the arrivals door at the DW Stadium.
