Erik Edman has left Wigan Athletic and joined Swedish club Helsingborgs on a free transfer
Edman with just one start under his belt this season was clearly not in Latics boss Roberto Martinez plans and at 31 it would have been extremely unlikely for the Sweden international to have his contract extended at the DW Stadium.
When the talented Swede joined the Latics from French club Rennes he brought a quality to the back four that had been missing since Leighton Baines had left the Latics, unfortunately for both Edman and the club he suffered a serious knee ligament at Blackburn just weeks after making his debut and that all but ended his Latics career.
Edman is said to be delighted to be going home and he cant wait to get started at his new club, speaking on the Helsingborgs club official website Edman said: ‘It feels fantastic to come home and hopefully I add my experience from the top level.’
Best wishes Erik from all at Vital Wigan
