Wigan boss Gary Caldwell expects Northern Ireland's Will Grigg to shine

By Staff Reporter

Wigan Athletic boss Gary Caldwell has hailed the arrival of Northern Ireland international Will Grigg.

The 24-year-old striker has made the move from Brentford for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

Grigg spent last season on loan at MK Dons where he scored 22 goals, including two against Manchester United in the League Cup.

"He's a proven goalscorer at League One level and had a superb season last year," said Caldwell.

"There were other clubs in the chase, including from the Championship, but he's chosen to come to Wigan and we are very happy about it."

Grigg moved to the Bees from Walsall for a tribunal-set fee of £325,000 in 2013.
