The Latics have confirmed what Vital Wigan reported yesterday morning, Cho Won-Hee left the club and joined China Super League side Hengda, an official statement released by the Latics reads:

Wigan Athletic can confirm that South Korean international midfielder Won Hee Cho`s contract with the club has been cancelled by mutual consent.

It marks the end of a near two year association with Latics, following his arrival from South Korean club Suwon Bluewings in March 2009.

Having made five league appearances for the club, he has just spent a year on loan back at his old club, but due to his lack of international appearances in this period, he no longer qualifies for a UK Visa and has thus been unable to renter the UK to finish his contract with Latics.

Roberto Martinez said: “We wish Won Hee all the best in the future, he was a wonderful character and a great professional who always gave his all for us.”
