Wigan Athletic imminent signing Hugo Rodallega has spoken about his move from Mexican club Necaxa to the Latics and how it is a dream come true for him to join a top Premier League club.

The Colombia international forward is set to be unveiled at the JJB next week when all the paper work has been taken care of and his work permit papers signed and stamped by the Home Office.

The 23 year old hot shot has cost the Latics £4.5 million and many pundits are predicting that Rodallega will turn out to be Emile Heskeys replacement in the Wigan line-up.

Speaking about his move Rodallega said that he was excited and happy about playing with stars such as Antonio Valencia, Amr Zaki, Wilson Palacios and the other members of the side, he told reporters:

‘I am very motivated to be playing alongside such a talented group of players’

‘I am very happy because a very good piece of news has been finally confirmed. This is one of my dreams coming true.’
