Wigan have signed Egyptian striker Amr Zaki on a one-year loan.

“It’s been a real tough deal to push through, that’s for sure,” said Wigan manager Steve Bruce, who has been chasing the striker for ten weeks.

“But I’m delighted that Amr’s finally a Wigan Athletic player. Everything has been sorted, and now he can just get on with the job at hand.

“Anyone with a one in two strike rate or better over 50 odd international games knows where the back of the net is.

“Although he hasn’t played in the Premier League, I am convinced, having seen him personally on several occasions that this boy can do the business.”

Zaki admitted he was delighted to be moving to England.

“I’ve come to England to score goals. That’s what I do,” he told the club’s website.

“I want to show the manager and the fans of Wigan that they have made a good choice and now I am totally focused on trying to get in the squad and prove myself here.”
