Wigan Athletic have signed defender Chey Dunkley on a three-year deal from League One rivals Oxford United.

Dunkley, 25, made 52 appearances in all competitions for Oxford last season but rejected a new contract and will join Wigan on 30 June on a free transfer.

The former Crewe and Hednesford Town centre-back joined the U's from Kidderminster Harriers on loan before signing permanently in 2015.

He is new manager Paul Cook's first signing since arriving on 31 May.
