Latics Pick Up Out of Contract Olsson

Wigan have signed former Swedish international Jonas Olsson until the end of the season

Olsson has just completed a two-year spell with Swedish side Djurgardens came to an end following their 2018 Swedish Cup win.

A former West Bromwich Albion defender, Olsson played over 250 games for the Baggies in a nine-year stay at the Hawthorns.

On completing his move to the DW Stadium, Olsson said:

“I am very happy to be involved; it has been a hectic few hours after I flew in from Stockholm yesterday.

“I have been missing the UK a lot and I always feel more British than Swedish in a sense!

“I have had a couple of good years back home but I am ready to be back and delighted to be back - I am still enjoying the game, I feel very fit and I am ready to go.”
