The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Joshua Richards

NEW sign­ing Haris Vuc­kic is ready to give his all for Wi­gan in a bid to get the club back to the Cham­pi­onship at the first time of ask­ing.

Slove­nian Vuc­kic ar­rived at the Lat­ics on trans­fer dead­line day af­ter agree­ing a loan switch from New­cas­tle United.

And af­ter find­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties few and far be­tween at St James’ Park, the 23-year-old striker is ea­ger to prove his worth.

“I’m very happy to be here and I’m look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge,” he said.

“At New­cas­tle I haven’t had the chance to play in the first team this sea­son, so I dis­cussed with the man­ager and with the club what my op­tions would be.

“We agreed that the best thing would be to come to an am­bi­tious club like Wi­gan who want to get pro­moted to the Cham­pi­onship.

“That’s the sort of chal­lenge I have been look­ing to be part of and I’m ex­cited for the sea­son ahead.”

Vuc­kic is no stranger to go­ing out on loan, scor­ing eight goals in 15 ap­pear­ances for Glas­gow Rangers last sea­son – and he is hope­ful his latest switch can be just as fruit­ful.

“I re­ally en­joyed my time at Rangers be­cause I played a good amount of games,” he added.

“I was re­ally happy to be play­ing ev­ery week, and I scored goals and helped the team. That’s very much some­thing I’m hop­ing to do here at Wi­gan. I want to score goals and help the team win games.

“I like to play football on the ground and at­tack. That’s ex­actly what the man­ager (Gary Cald­well) wants us to do so it suits me re­ally well.

“I want to show him that I can play the way he wants and when I get the chance to I will give my max­i­mum.”
