Scharner returns to Wigan on loan

Paul Scharner has sealed his return to Wigan by completing a loan move from Hamburg for the rest of the season.

The Austria international spent four-and-a-half years at the DW Stadium before leaving to join West Bromwich Albion in 2010.

He becomes manager Roberto Martinez’s fourth January signing after Honduran midfielder Roger Espinoza, Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez and Spanish goalkeeper Joel Robles, and the third who has been borrowed until the end of the season.

Scharner told Wigan’s official website: "It really is fantastic to be back. Wigan will always have a big place in my heart, so to be asked to come back and help the team now is something really special for me."

Martinez wants the versatile Scharner, who can also play in the centre of midfield, to give him another option in defence after Ivan Ramis was ruled out for the season with a knee injury.

Scharner made 145 league appearances in his first spell at Wigan and helped them reach the 2006 League Cup final, proving a popular figure at the club.
