Wigan Athletic have put paid to any thought of left back Maynor Figueroa leaving for Sunderland or anywhere else for that matter, the popular Honduras international has signed a new deal with the Latics.
Speaking about his signing of the new deal Figueroa told the clubs official website that he is delighted to be 100% committed to Wigan Athletic, he said: ‘I am glad all the talk is over now and I can concentrate 100% on playing football and doing well for Wigan Athletic.’
Latics boss Roberto Martinez said he was thrilled to put an end to the speculation surrounding Figueroa and that he is absolutely settled at the club, Martinez said: ‘Maynor is a top professional, undoubtedly one of the best I have worked with in my time in the game and I am very happy that we have been able to reward him in this manner and put an end to all the silliness surrounding him in recent weeks.
‘I have talked to Maynor at length, as a fellow Spanish speaker it helps that we can communicate very clearly with one another. He has never spoken to me about wanting to leave the club. He is settled here and now just wants to focus on doing well for us.
‘I said all along that if we decide to sell any of our most consistent performers, it will be only when the time is right for Wigan Athletic, with that money reinvested in order to move the club to the next level.’
