Trinidad & Tobago international Jason Scotland is relishing the chance to play in the Premier League after completing his transfer from Swansea City to Wigan Athletic.
Despite being 30, Scotland has still to play in English football's top-flight, after starring for Dundee United and St Johnstone before teaming up with the Swans two years ago.
He said: "It's great to have joined Wigan Athletic and get the chance to play in the Premier League.
"It's a big step up for me but hopefully I can take it in my stride and do well. I'm confident that by putting in the hard work it will bring results.
"To get the chance to play at venues like Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge, is something I can't wait to experience, and just thinking about lining up against some of the best players in the world makes me smile, and I'll relish that challenge.
"Anybody who is playing in the lower divisions wants to play in the Premier League and show the world what they can do, and that's no different for me. I'm so excited to get this opportunity.
"I want to fit in and gel with my team-mates first, that's really important to me. After that I'll giving it everything I've got to get results for the club."
