Wigan Athletic midfield man Ben Watson has returned to the Latics following Roberto Martinez cutting his loan spell short at West Brom and recalling the battling midfield player to the DW Stadium.
With the Latics allowing three players Rachid Bouaouzan, Joe Holt and Jon Routledge to leave the club to gain experience on loan with Swedish clubs it leaves the squad a little short on numbers, Gary Caldwell is also set to serve a three match ban following his sending off at Manchester City on Monday.
West Brom boss Roberto Di Matteo was disappointed but philosophical about the recall saying that Watson will be missed but he wishes him and Latics well for the rest of the season, Di Matteo said: ‘We’re really sorry to see Ben go.
‘He’s a great lad who has settled in really well and made a vital contribution to our season.
‘But this is always a possibility when you loan a player and I would like to wish him and Wigan all the best for the rest of the season.”.
