Figueroa also attracted interest from clubs in the US and Mexico
Wigan have signed Honduras defender Maynor Figueroa on loan until the end of the season, subject to receiving international clearance.

The 24-year-old joins from Deportivo Olimpia - the club from which Wigan signed Wilson Palacios - following a three-week trial with the Latics.

Wigan boss Steve Bruce told the club's website: "He's strong, he's quick and has a superb left foot.

"I think he has the attributes to adapt to the English game."

Figueroa, who has 47 international caps, said: "I have always had an ambition to play in England and now I have the chance to prove myself in what I consider to be the best league in the world. I am excited by the challenge."
