Stojkovic signs for Wigan on loan

Wigan Athletic have completed the loan signing of Sporting Lisbon's Serbia goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic to the end of the Premier League season.

The two clubs reached an initial agreement last week but Wigan had to wait for the 26-year-old's visa and work permit to come through. Stojkovic is in line to join the squad for Saturday's home match against Aston Villa.

"He will add tremendous competition for places in the goalkeeping department," Wigan manager Roberto Martinez, who has lost second-choice keeper Richard Kingson to the African Nations Cup with Ghana, told the club website.
