Josip Skoko confirmed that he has signed a two-year deal for English Premier League side Wigan Athletic and is hoping to be available to play for his new side next weekend, following the Socceroos training camp. Initial reports suggested that Skoko had failed to get a work permit to play in England, but the experienced Turkish-based midfielder said that has all been sorted out and he is simply waiting on the right visa that will allow him to play in England. He was impressed with Wigan-s first up performance against reigning champions and raging hot favourites Chelsea, which saw them lose to a last gasp goal from Argentinaen striker Hernan Crespo. “They worked really hard, had a few chances and were very unlucky in the end,” said Skoko from Hoenderloo. “It was a bit heartbreaking there for them at the end, but it was a positive performance.” Skoko will head straight back to Wigan after the camp and hopes to be in line for a start next weekend. “I-ll be arriving there on Thursday afternoon, so hopefully I will be in contention for the next game.”
