The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

REECE Wabara is al­ready tar­get­ing Premier League foot­ball af­ter swap­ping Barns­ley for Wi­gan Ath­letic.

The 24-year-old full-back has ini­tially joined on a six­month deal but he is look­ing much fur­ther for­ward.

“The club is very am­bi­tious,” said Wabara.“I could sense that from meet­ing the gaffer (Gary Cald­well) and the staff around the place.

“I am an am­bi­tious per­son as well, so the chance to come here and try and get pro­moted was too good an op­por­tu­nity to turn down.

“I want to play in the Premier League and this club wants to get back there as well, so hope­fully I can achieve that goal here in the fu­ture.”
