Sam spent the first half of this season on loan at Barnsley but has started the Latics’ last two games since he was recalled from Oakwell.
“Sam has proven that it is never too late to make your mark at a club.” Matt Kleinman – Sidekick Management
Egypt international Sam was overjoyed to put pen to paper on his new deal. “If I am being honest, six months ago I didn’t think I would ever play for the club again. I had a great time at Barnsley, but as soon as I came back earlier this month, the manager here outlined straight away what he wants, his vision for the club and that’s something I want to be a part of.”
Matt Kleinman was equally delighted for his client “Sam has proven that it is never too late to make your mark at a club. By his own admission things weren’t going great for him at Wigan first time around but he has gone away, worked on his game and this new contract is his reward. These are exciting times for Sam and we wish him every success”.
