Portsmouth have announced the arrival of Callum Lang from Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee. The winger has signed a 2.5 year deal at Fratton Park, with an option for a further 12 months.

Lang, 25, has predominantly been used as a right-winger throughout his career but has also featured as a striker and a number 10. He has extensive experience in League One and the Championship with Wigan, as well as League Two and the Scottish Premiership after loans with Morecambe and Motherwell respectively.

Speaking to the club website, Pompey Head Coach John Mousinho said:

“Callum is a versatile player who’s comfortable in any position across the front line.


“He’s also a proven scorer at this level and has a promotion under his belt with Wigan, so we’re delighted to bring him to the club.


“Callum adds goals, creativity and experience to our squad and I’m really looking forward to working with him.”

Callum Lang has been a target for a while, and rumours have been circling for most of January that this was finally the time. He will be available for the Blues trip to Oxford tomorrow night!
