Titus Bramble, Antoine Sibierski to Wigan; Wigan's New Home Uniform

The 25-year old former Newcastle defender becomes the first signing of new Wigan manager Chris Hutchings as he heads to the JJB on a three year contract. Bramble became expendable after Sam Allardyce took over at Newcastle and after making 105 appearances for the Magpies, he was told his contract would not be renewed.

On another free transfer, French striker Antoine Sibierski has joined Wigan from Newcastle. The 32-year old signed a two year contract with the Latics, previously appearing in 118 Premiership games in total with Newcastle and Manchester City while scoring just 14 goals. He's a fairly versatile player who is capable of occupying a role in midfield or as a striker although his best days certainly appear to be behind him.

Wigan also have put images of their 2007-2008 home uniform on their official website
(mentioned below). They are not "copy-and-paste-able", so check out the site and take a look. Blue and white stripes are the look on the jersey, with all-blue shorts and white socks. It's a nice uniform, safely conservative in form. The uniform will be released to the public through Wigan's fan shop on June 14.

didn't want to keep Bramble around:
