WI­GAN boss Gary Cald­well ex­pressed his de­light af­ter the club took up the op­tion on David Perkins’ con­tract to tie the mid­fielder down un­til 2017.

Perkins, 33, joined Wi­gan in the sum­mer af­ter be­ing re­leased by Black­pool, and has played ev­ery minute of the Lat­ics’ League One cam­paign.

“We knew what we were get­ting with ‘Perks’ – so it’s no sur­prise he has done so well,” Cald­well said.

“Ev­ery­one can see what he gives us; he’s the sort of player ev­ery team needs and typ­i­cal of the man, there are no airs and graces – he just gets on with his job day in day out, and gives us great con­sis­tency.”
