Sierra Leone skipper Steven Caulker has signed for Championship side Wigan until the end of the season and could make his debut on Saturday against former side Cardiff a few days after joining Wigan. 

The 31-year-old will link up with Kolo Touré’s side on a deal until the end of the 2022/23 Championship campaign. 

“Steven Caulker has vast experience in the Premier League with the likes of Tottenham, QPR Cardiff City & Liverpool. The defender will wear the number 29 shirt during his time at the DW Stadium,” Wigan said in their Statement.

“Five years, one hundred and six days after my last game in the championship. I am back, “ Caulker posted on his LinkedIn after signing for the Championship side on Monday.

“Five years 106 days after my last game in the Championship, I am back,” he noted on social media.

 “I’ve spent days, weeks, months, and years dreaming that one day I will return.

“I know it’s going to be a huge challenge given our current league position, but it’s a challenge that I am looking forward to.”

Nothing good comes easy, right? A huge thank you to everyone who continues to support me on this journey, it means a lot to know I am not alone.”

Just over a week ago, Caulker parted ways with Turkish side Fatih Karagümrük four months after signing a two-year deal. 

He joined the Turkish side from Fenerbahce on a two-year deal in August 2022.

He took part in a total of 7 matches, including 6 Super League and 1 Turkish Ziraat Cup, with the Karagümrük jersey this season, and scored 1 goal while staying on the field for 472 minutes.

The 6ft 3 defender, who played an integral part in the Sierra Leone African Cup of Nations in Cameroon, will start a new club search in the coming days.

Last season, the Center-back spent the entire 2021–22 season on loan with fellow Süper Lig side Gaziantep – where he made 29 topflight appearances scoring two goals.

Caulker started his football career as a 16 old lad at Tottenham with the youth side in 2007.

He has had spells with Tottenham Hotspur, Yeovil Town, Bristol CitySwanseaCardiffQPR, SouthamptonLiverpoolDundeeAlanyasporFenerbahçeGaziantep and Fatih Karagümrük.
