Wigan Athletic's Austria international Paul Scharner has confirmed that he will leave the Latics at the end of the season. The 30-year-old utility man played in Monday's 2-2 draw against Hull City with 'THANX' dyed into the back of his head, having joined the Latics in January 2006 from Norwegian club Brann. He later told BBC Radio Manchester: "This was the last game at the DW Stadium for me, that's true - as a Wigan player. "Next season I am looking for a midfield position, but it's too early to say at which club. I am looking to stay in the Premier League. "I have lots of memories. I think we have to talk for another 30 minutes to cover all the stuff. "First of all I have to say thank-you to the chairman of Wigan Athletic for giving me the chance to play in the Premier League. "And another thank-you to the supporters. They created a nice song for me. It was very enjoyable and I go home with tears in my eyes."
