Wigan have completed the signing of midfielder James McArthur from Hamilton for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old has signed a four-year contract at the DW Stadium after the Scottish Premier League club agreed to his sale this week.
The Scotland Under-21 international follows the same path as fellow midfielder James McCarthy, who left Accies for Wigan last summer.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez said: "James is a really exciting prospect and we are all delighted that he has chosen to join Wigan Athletic.
"We are building a squad here at the DW and I see James as being another real quality addition who will add great competition in the midfield areas.
"He is young, hungry, desperate to play for us in the Premier League and I believe he has all the attributes you need to be a success at this level."
