Northern Ireland striker Will Grigg pens new deal at Wigan Athletic

By Josh Bunting

Northern Ireland international Will Grigg has extended his contract at Wigan Athletic by a further two years.

The Lactics confirmed on Thursday afternoon that the striker had put pen to paper to stay at the DW Stadium until the summer of 2020.

Manager Paul Cook was delighted that the 26 year-old has committed his immediate future to the club.

“This is absolutely great news," he said. "Will is a proven goal-scorer, a superb professional and is a key part of the squad. This was one of the priorities of the summer and I thank the chairman and the club for making this possible.

“To have this kind of commitment from Will is a huge shot in the arm for the team the club and all the Wigan Athletic supporters."

Grigg was, of course, part of Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 squad, where his name really stood out with the famous 'Will Grigg's on fire' chant that went viral.

The forward began his professional career at Walsall and first came to prominence in 2012-13 as he claimed the club’s Player of the Season and Players' Player awards.

The striker has scored 35 goals in 85 appearances for Wigan since signing for the North-West side in 2015 from Brentford, where he struggled to nail down a place in the team.

He has not started a league game so far this season following a knee injury picked up in March of this year, which forced him to also miss Northern Ireland's recent World Cup qualifying fixtures.
