Wigan sign Cameroon star Olembe
Salomon Olembe has signed for Wigan
Olembe was released by Marseille in June
Premier League side Wigan have completed the signing of Cameroon left-back Salomon Olembe, subject to international clearance.

The 26-year-old has joined the Latics initially on a one-year deal after his contract at Marseille expired in June.

Olemebe, who previously had a spell at Leeds, has won 60 caps for Cameroon and appeared in the World Cup finals.

Boss Chris Hutchings told Wigan's website: "He knows the demands of the Premier League, he's a clever player."

Olembe will help fill the vacancy in the left-back berth created by Leighton Baines' summer move to Everton.

Hutchings added: "Salomon is experienced and has played at the highest level.

"We have had our eye on him for quite a while and like all our signings, we have done a lot of research on him.

"We were working right up to the transfer deadline to try to get a left-back into the club, but one or two didn't work out for various reasons."
