Ramis chooses Wigan and Martinez

Published Add your comment

Wigan have completed the signing of Ivan Ramis on a three-year contract from Real Mallorca for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old defender looked set to join West Ham after the La Liga side posted an article on their website saying they had accepted an offer from the Hammers and the player was heading to London for a medical.

However, Ramis elected to join Wigan and chairman Dave Whelan believes his manager Roberto Martinez should be the one credited with persuading the centre-half to move to the north west. He told ESPN: "It's down to the influence of Roberto."
