Newcastle's summer rebuilding programme began today with a departure as James Perch completed his move to Wigan.
The 27-year-old utility man has moved for an undisclosed fee, understood to be in the region of £700,000, and signed a four-year deal after being told he was free to leave St James' Park.
Perch told the Championship club's official website, wiganlatics.co.uk: "It feels great to be here with a new challenge ahead of me, and I'm very excited at getting that started."
