Christian Walton re-joins Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan!
Christian Walton will re-join Latics for the 2018-19 campaign. Christian was a fundamental part of the success Latics achieved in 2017-18. Last season Christian won the Sky Bet League One Golden Glove and produced a number of memorable performances.
