Wigan goalkeeper Jamie Jones has signed a new two-year contract extension which will see him remain at the club until 2021.
The 30-year-old is currently in his second season at the DW Stadium after signing on a free transfer in 2017.
Jones has played 32 times in all competitions since joining Wigan, keeping 12 clean sheets in that period.
Manager Paul Cook said: "Jamie has been excellent for us when called upon; having a number of quality goalkeepers at the club is obviously important.
"There is big competition for places amongst our goalkeepers and Nick Colgan has built a really healthy environment for the goalkeepers to work together to improve each other daily."
Jones helped the Latics to a Sky Bet League One title-winning campaign in his debut season.
Along with Brighton loanee Christian Walton, Jones helped break Wigan's clean-sheet record with 27 in the league.
A promotion winner with Preston North End in 2014-15, Jones has also featured for Leyton Orient, Coventry City, Rochdale, Colchester United and Stevenage in his career to date.
