Kjøper angrepsspiller fra Wigan

25 år gammel angrepsspiller fra Wigan klar for Pompey.

NYHETER: Callum Lang har vært i Wigan siden han var 14 år gammel. Nå er 25-åringen solgt til Pompey for et ikke offentliggjort beløp.

Lang skrev under på en kontrakt ut 2025/26-sesongen. Pompey sikret seg samtidig opsjon på ytterligere ett år.

Lang kan spille i alle offensive posisjoner, men er trolig mest aktuell som kantspiller i Pompey. I Wigan var han med på opprykket til Championship under manager Paul Cook. Lang scoret 18 mål den sesongen, inkludert scoring mot Pompey i begge oppgjørene.

Callum Langs kommentarer til overgangen

“I made the decision that it was probably time for me to move on from Wigan, so it was about hearing from a few clubs and picking the best. This feels like the right fit for me. I’m excited that everything’s done and now I just can’t wait to get started.

It was a tough decision for me to leave after more than 10 years and coming through the academy – I owe them so much. But I also think that I gave a lot back. I think my family would have preferred me to stay in the north, but football’s a short career and I wanted to go where I had the best opportunity.

I spoke to Tom Naylor and Jack Whatmough and they only had good things to say about the club. I’m looking for a place to live and they’ll be helping me out! I’ve loved the atmosphere whenever I’ve played down here and now I’m really excited to be a part of that. It was a major pull. This is a club that I’ve always done well against, so hopefully I can keep scoring goals now that I’m wearing the shirt.

I see a lot in this side that I also saw in the Wigan team when we went up. We can play football and also win a fight when we have to.”

«Callum is a versatile player who’s comfortable in any position across the front line. He’s also a proven scorer at this level and has a promotion under his belt with Wigan, so we’re delighted to bring him to the club.

Callum adds goals, creativity and experience to our squad and I’m really looking forward to working with him.»
