Jason Koumas will wear the number 10 shirt at the Latics, the squad number being vacated by the departing Lee McCulloch

Koumas is expected to also take McCulloch`s place on the left side of the Latics midfield.

McCulloch was reported has being emotional and shocked when he left the Latics Christopher Park training ground yesterday

He was emotional as he said his goodbyes and shocked at the speed in which, when the fee had been agreed how quickly the transfer went through

Lee negotiated his own personal terms with the Glasgow giants; he sacked his agent earlier in the year and now represents himself.

McCulloch was quoted as saying that the Latics will always be special to him and that his boyhood hero`s Rangers were the only team that he would have left the JJB for, revealing that there were other offers on the table.

Will Koumas do the number 10 proud?
