Wigan have signed Everton's Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane on a three-year deal with an option for a further year.

BBC Sport understands the fee for the 29-year-old is in the region of 2m.

"I am delighted Kevin has agreed to come on board. He's another real quality acquisition for us," Jewell told the club website.

"He brings something we haven't got at the club, a naturally attacking left-footed player."

Kilbane added: "Paul Jewell is my type of manager because he likes to be close to players and I just want to join up with the rest of the squad and playing my part."

"I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone at Everton. I've had great support from everyone there and there's always a bit of you that's sad to say goodbye when you leave such a great club."
