    Martinez must have a scout in the SPL? Caldwell, McCarthy, MacArthur and Sammon (if it goes through) all recruited in the last 18 months

    Fantastic news. If he can bring his SPL form to the PL he'll have to be considered.

    What a turnaround. From failing to hit a barndoor with a banjo at the Brandywell to the Prem in three seasons. I really wish him well and am looking forward to how he copes, but it's still totally preposterous. Well done big man.

    What he lacks in natural ability he seems to make up for with hard graft.

    Is he good enough for the Premiership? Might not be the best move for him if he's just going to sit on the bench.

    I think Martinez will definitely give him a chance to impress. He's tried a few different players with Rodallega and none of them have been able to put the ball in the net, so there's definitely room for somebody to make their mark.

    Rodallega is their best striker this season, with only 6 goals, the other two recognised strikers at the club (Di Santo and Mcmanaman) only have a goal between them.
    On form alone, he should be worth a place on the bench

    I would say the fact he signed Gary Caldwell suggests the opposite!

    Another Irish striker in the Premier League, can't complain. I hope it works out for him.

    It's all points of view i suppose, but imagine being a Wigan fan tonight, Prem survival on a knife edge, last day of the window, last chance to buy some badly needed goals and here comes Connor Sammon from Kilmarnock, who might have been a Scunthorpe player last week.

    Anyway, great to see him get the chance and as someone else said, at club who have shopped cleverly in Scotland of late. Here's to him scoring the goals to keep them up, and the baying for more Trapattoni blood for ignoring him even if he does.

    Sammon Of College.

    I can't say I have spent a lot of time watching him, but it dose seem pretty bizarre. It's not as if his form at Kilmarnock was hugely noteworthy. In fact, according to Wikipedia he has only scored 33 goals in his entire senior career (over 6 years), and about half of them were in the LOI (mostly for UCD). It's not like he's just a kid either. I can only assume there is a lot more to his game than goals, but it's pretty rare for a striker to get plucked from obscurity like this unless they score a barrel load.

    Anyway despite my disbelief I also wish him well!

    15 goals in 20 games this year isn't bad.
    We're not arrogant, we're just better.

    Fair point! I hadn't realised he'd scored that many this year, I just looked at his overall record with Kilmarnock.

    That certainly suggests he's finally found his scoring form, and I assume that's what attracted Wigan. However, the flip side is it makes his record before the start of this season look incredibly bad! It seems he scored only 1 league goal in each of his first 2 SPL seasons, on the back of just 3 in his last LOI season. Still not convinced he's cut out for the Premiership!
