After seeing West Ham gloating that they had snatched a young starlet from under Wigan Athletic’s noses at the last minute I was a bit disgruntled….. but Ramis has gone against his agents money grabbing advice and has signed for Latics on footballing grounds
Wigan Athletic can confirm that experienced Spanish defender Ivan Ramis has signed a three-year-deal with the Club after joining from La Liga side Real Mallorca.
The 27 year-old becomes Roberto Martinez’s second signing of the summer transfer window following the arrival of Fraser Fyvie in July, and could make his first appearance in a Latics shirt against his former club on Sunday when the two sides meet at the DW Stadium for a pre-season friendly match.
Ramis made 103 league appearances for Real Mallorca since making his debut in February 2004 against Albacete.
Aside from a loan spell at Real Valladolid during the 2005-06 season, Ramis has spent his entire career at Mallorca having risen through the ranks from the club’s youth system.
Last season, the central defender made 34 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga side, scoring two goals, against Getafe and Rayo Vallecano.
