Wigan have announced they will sign Terell Thomas when the Charlton Athletic defender’s deal ends on July 1.
The 21-year-old defender has signed a 12-month deal with the Latics, who were relegated from the Championship last season.
Thomas spent the last campaign on loan at Woking and was released by the Addicks earlier in the summer.
New Wigan boss Paul Cook said: “A tall central defender with a good touch and athletic, Terell has become available and is one the recruitment department have been looking at. We want him to develop with us this season.”
