Wigan bring in Norwegian Haestad
Kristofer Haestad
Haestad has played 11 times for Norway
Wigan have beaten off a host of Premiership clubs to sign Norwegian international Kristofer Haestad.

The highly-rated midfielder, 23, who has won 11 caps, has joined on loan for the rest of the season from IK Start.

"I know there were other Premiership clubs in the hunt too, so I'm delighted to have got him on board," Wigan boss Paul Jewell told the club's website.

"He can play anywhere across the middle, and at 23, he's at the right age to test himself in this league."

The first game Haestad will be eligible to play for Wigan will be the FA Cup third round tie against Portsmouth on 6 January.

"It's a dream to play in England and I'm grateful to Wigan for taking the chance on me," said Haestad.
