Wigan midfielder David Perkins has signed a one-year extension to his contract with the club.
Perkins, 34, has committed himself to the Latics and new manager Paul Cook until the summer of 2018 following their relegation to Sky Bet League One.
“Every squad needs its senior players and David is one of those players every club needs,” said Cook, who quit as Portsmouth boss to take over from Graham Barrow at the end of last month.
Cook added on the club’s official website: “As far as the division goes, he’s been there and done it. He clearly keeps himself very fit and I’m sure he’ll continue to be a great asset to the club.”

Cook told the club’s official website:Â “Chey is an exciting talent and will be a big asset.Â He adds more quality to a strong defensive department.”

Chairman David Sharpe told the club’s official site: “Graham has spent a large part of his professional career with Wigan Athletic over three spells, and has been with us during the highs and lows of the past eight years.
“On behalf of everyone at the club and all our supporters, I want to thank him for all his hard work during his time with Wigan Athletic.
“Graham has been a great servant to the club as a player, a manager and a coach and on behalf of everyone at Wigan Athletic, we wish him all the very best for the future.”
Barrow had spentÂ 15 years at the Latics in three different spells, having previously been a coach underÂ Roberto Martinez in 2009 before being promoted to assistant manager and also serving as caretaker boss in 2013 and 2016.
Previously, he was manager between 1994 and 1995, helping the club rise away from the foot of the Football League and also made 212 appearances for the club between 1981 and 1986, scoring 44 goals.
