Wigan have completed the signing of Ivory Coast striker Arouna Kone from La Liga side Levante for an undisclosed fee.

The 28-year-old scored 15 times in 34 games last season to help Levante to a surprise sixth-place finish in La Liga during a loan spell from Sevilla.

Kone only completed a permanent switch to Levante at the start of this summer.

His arrival comes a day after manager Roberto Martinez brought in Arsenal midfielder Ryo Miyaichi on loan.

Kone, who has signed a three-year contract, has been capped 35 times for his country - scoring nine goals in the process.

Martinez has been searching for a replacement for forward Hugo Rodallega, who left for Fulham on a free transfer after his contract expired.

Wigan have also brought in defender Ivan Ramis from Mallorca and midfielder Fraser Fyvie from Aberdeen on permanent deals this summer.
