Wigan boss Steve Bruce has confirmed he will sign loanee Maynor Figueroa permanently next month.

The Honduras left-back has been at the JJB Stadium on loan from Olimpia since January and has started every Premier League match this season. And Bruce believes the decision to sign him on a long-term deal is "a no-brainer".

The Latics manager told the Wigan Evening Post: "I think Maynor has done enough here, and there is a deal in place between the two clubs."

He added: "We negotiated in the summer to have him on loan until Christmas, but now with the sort of money we're talking about - £1.5million - it's a no-brainer not to make it permanent.

"That will go through in January when the transfer window opens and we'll be delighted to get that done."
