Newcastle United defender James Perch has joined Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee

Newcastle United defender James Perch has joined Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old has agreed a four-year deal with the FA Cup-winning Latics, who were relegated to the Championship at the end of last season.

Perch signed for Newcastle in July 2010 from boyhood club Nottingham Forest and made 81 appearances during his three-year spell on Tyneside.

Deployed in a number of positions across defence and midfield, he represented the Magpies in the Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup, scoring once - against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Boxing Day last season.
