Wigan have signed former England international goalkeeper Scott Carson from Turkish side Bursaspor.

The 27-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at the DW Stadium and becomes manager Owen Coyle's fifth signing in a week.

Former Leeds and Liverpool keeper Carson told wiganlatics.co.uk: "I'm over the moon to join the club and for sorting the whole move out.

"Now the focus is to get my head down and start working hard in time for the new season.

"Coming into a squad with a new look to it is exciting. There are plenty of players coming in at the moment.

"But there are also a number of guys here who have been at the club for a long time so I'm sure they'll help lads like myself settle in, and right now I can't wait to start getting involved."

Carson has spent the last two years in Turkey and helped Bursaspor qualify for the Europa League last season, making 29 appearances.

He started his career at Leeds, moved to Liverpool in 2005 and had loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton and Aston Villa before joining West Brom in 2008.

Carson, who has four senior international caps, joins the Latics for an undisclosed fee.
