M'Bami handed Latics chance

08 Sep 2009 - 17:28:03

Wigan Athletic have handed a one-week trial to Cameroon international midfielder Modeste M'Bami.

The 26-year-old is a free agent after leaving Marseille at the end of last season, having also played in France with Sedan and Paris St Germain.

Latics boss Roberto Martinez confirmed: "Modeste has a great pedigree and a great curriculum with top teams around the continent.

"He can control the tempo of the game with his ability and experience.

"He has a sharp brain, can see a pass quickly and can operate in a few positions around the midfield area.

"We'll be assessing him over the next week and see what happens."

M'Bami has previously attracted interest from Wolves and Portsmouth and appeared for the latter during pre-season.
