James Tavernier (Wigan)

tavernierA series of impressive displays on loan at Rotherham last season has earned Tavernier a deserved move to Championship side Wigan Athletic. Tavernier is an attacking full back that could also be used in the role as a winger, and scored five times for Rotherham in 27 games. He returned to Newcastle at the end of the season where he was deemed surplus to requirements, allowing him to join Wigan for an undisclosed fee. Tavernier is one of a number of signings for Wigan who are now one of the promotion favourites for the 2014/15 season. If Tavernier builds on his excellent displays last term, we can expect him to feature heavily in the anticipated promotion charge.
