Sierra Leone skipper Steven Caulker has confirmed his time with Wigan Athletic is up after four months spell with the club.

Caulker, 31, has spent the past four months with the Latics. He joined the club on a deal until the end of the 2022/23 Championship campaign.

“I would like to thank Wigan Athletic opportunity to have been a part of something special over the last four months,” Caulker continues, “Despite the obvious issues the club faces, the staff, players and fans continue to rally together to fight as one.

“I have met some great people. It’s rare my stories have a fairytale ending, and this one is no different. I will take the pain from defeat and move on to my next challenge, stronger and wiser. I wish Wigan Athletic F.C. and everyone involved with the club – the very best of luck for next season.”

Wigan were relegated from the Sky Bet Championship after they could only manage a 1-1 draw at relegation rivals Reading on Saturday. A last-gasp equaliser was enough as they were condemned to relegation from the Championship, with the 1-1 draw at relegation rivals Reading sealing their fate.

They concluded their campaign with another draw against Rotherham on Monday. Since joining the club in January, Caulker has featured nine times for the Latics.

Caulker was signed to help the club battle a struggling campaign. The captain of the Sierra Leone national team after switching allegiances in October 2021, with his wealth of experience, Caulker has played over 300 senior games in his career to date.
