Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of winger Gavin Massey on a two-year deal following his recent departure from Leyton Orient.

Massey left Orient after thier relegation into the Vanarama National League after exercising an option to leave the club.

Speaking to the Latics website manager Paul Cook said “Gavin is a player we feel can do really well for us,”

“He played against Portsmouth twice last season and scored a great goal at Fratton Park. He’s quick, strong and committed and can operate anywhere across the front three.

“For a player of his age, he has a lot of experience and has played a lot in this division. He adds great competition to the squad.”

Massey began his career with Watford, making seven first team appearances for the Hornets.

During his time at Vicarage Road he had loan spells with Wealdstone, Yeovil Town and Colchester United, joing the latter on a three year deal ahead of the 2012/13 season.

During a four year stay with the U’s he made over one hundred and fifty appearances, scoring twenty goals.

He joined Leyton Orient for an undisclosed fee ahead of the 2016/17 season and scored on his debut in a 1-1 draw against Cheltenham Town.

His eight goals weren’t enough to keep the Orient in the Football League, but his form did capture the attention of former Portsmouth boss Cook, who has now taken him into SkyBet League One with Wigan.
