Wigan Athletic are delighted to confirm that lightning quick Spanish winger Albert Crusat has signed from Almeria, for an undisclosed fee.
The 29 year old underwent a medical at the DW Stadium on Monday and has put pen to paper on a two year contract, with the option of a third.
Crusat is 29 years old and is a native of Barcelona, His former clubs include the Espnyol B and first teams, along with spells at Rayo Vallecano and Lleida before signing for Almeria. He is a very pacty winger who has played for Spanish Under 16/s, 17’s, and 18’s.
Roberto Martinez is very happy to have made his capture and said:
“Albert is someone we have been trailing for a long time and it is fantastic news that we have managed to get him. He will add something completely new to the squad, he has electric speed, really quick feet and has played over 150 games in la Liga. He is an explosive player, who understands how to affect games with his attributes, having earned his long experience in such a competitive, tactical and demanding league as La Liga.
“He is compact physically, but has great upper body strength, and I am confident he can adapt quickly to the demands of the Barclays Premier League. I think our fans will take to him because he is a really exciting player, who can bring a crowd to their feet.”
Crusat himself said:
“It has been a crazy few days but I am really looking forward to the challenge of playing in the English league now that everything has been done. “Roberto Martinez has shown great faith in me and I am determined to prove him right. I can’t wait to meet my new team mates and get started.”
