Wigan seal Eaden deal
Wigan boss Paul Jewell secured the signing of Birmingham full-back Nicky Eaden following the Latic's 2-1 win over Stockport.

The clubs have yet to confirm a fee for the former Barnsley players, but it is believed to be nominal.


Nicky's done very well on loan here and we are pleased he's agreed to come permanently
Latics boss Paul Jewell

Eaden has impressed in a month-long loan spell from City and has a signed two-and-a- half-year deal at the JJB Stadium.

"Nicky's done very well on loan here and we are pleased he's agreed to come permanently," Jewell told the club's website.

"When we originally brought him in we always felt that we may look to make it a permanent deal and that's how it's turned out.

"He's got good experience and has real quality and has done exceptionally well so far.

"He's not played a lot of games in the past six months so his fitness can still improve and then he'll get even better."

Wigan striker Nathan Ellington bagged his 11th goal of the season four minutes into the second half, equalising Stockport's first-half opener by Luke Beckett.

Neil Roberts completed the comeback to move Wigan top of Division Two when he volleyed home from just inside the area on the hour.
