Marco Pappa #16 of Chicago Fire celebrates the game's first and game winning goal against D.C. United at RFK Stadium.
That is the news that the Guatemalian footballer has signed a pre-contract agreement to leave his current club (Chicago Fire) in the MLS, for of course the much sunnier climate (we wish) of Wigan. This deal has rumoured to have already to be done, and will link up with Latics at the end of the MLS season. For many Latics fans, the news has come from some what out of the dark. But then we have had no news on any possible transfer targets this summer, so any that did happen were likely to be a drop in the ocean.
More news as this comes along, also follow any news on SB Nation's Chicago Fire website. Will bring you a player low down in the next 24 hours.
