Wigan midfielder James McArthur has signed a two-year contract extension which will keep him at the DW Stadium until 2016.

The Scotland international enjoyed an improved second season with the club, linking up well with James McCarthy in central midfield, and played a key part in the Latics' top-flight survival.

"I'm delighted to extend my stay at the club after what has been a fantastic season for Wigan and for me personally," said the 24-year-old.
