Wigan Athletic playmaker Michael Jacobs has today put pen-to-paper on a two-year contract extension at the DW Stadium.

The deal will see the 25-year-old remain at Latics until at least the summer of 2020.

“I have played some of my best football here and I am excited for the future,” Jacobs told

“The manager (Paul Cook) has been excellent since he has come in and the boys are really buying into the way he wants us to play.

“To get my future sorted feels good and now I can put my full focus on getting the club back to the Championship.”

Crackers’ recent performances have been recognised by the Football League Paper, who today listed the former Wolves man in their Team of the Week.
