Wigan have signed defender Titus Bramble on a three-year contract.
Bramble made more than 100 appearances for Newcastle
Bramble, who was released by Newcastle at the end of the season, joins on a free transfer and becomes Chris Hutchings' first signing as Wigan boss.
"This is an excellent signing and he'll add experience to the back four," Hutchings said of the 25-year-old, who started his career at Ipswich.
"Other clubs were very interested and it speaks volumes for us as a club that he has chosen to come here."
Bramble was regarded as one of the country's brightest prospects during his time with Ipswich and earned 12 England Under-21 caps between 2000 and 2002.
He spent five years on Tyneside after a £5m move to the north-east in 2002 and made 105 appearances for the Magpies.
However, he was told his contract would not be renewed upon Sam Allardyce's arrival at St James' Park in May.
"He's got a point to prove, I want to make him better and hopefully with the players we bring in he will become a better player," added Hutchings.
Bramble will join up with his new team-mates for pre-season training at the end of June.
