Wigan have signed former Premier League defender Jonas Olsson until the end of the season.
The former Sweden international joins the Championship side after a two-year spell at Djurgardens IF, during which he won the Swedish Cup this season.
Olsson played over 250 games during a nine-year stay at the Hawthorns before he returned to Swedish football in March 2017.
"I am very happy to be involved; it has been a hectic few hours after I flew in from Stockholm yesterday," Olsson said. "I have been missing the UK a lot and I always feel more British than Swedish in a sense!
"I have had a couple of good years back home but I am ready to be back and delighted to be back - I am still enjoying the game, I feel very fit and I am ready to go."
Wigan are four points above the Championship relegation zone and host QPR on Saturday.
