Granqvist to Wigan Athletic
Sweden defender Andreas Granqvist will join English Premier League club Wigan Athletic on loan until June 30 next year, his club Helsingborg said on Thursday.
The 21-year-old was captain of Helsingborg last season as they finished fourth place in the league and won the Cup.
Helsingborg said on their Web site that the centre back, who has one international cap, will not take part in Sweden’s three South America friendlies next month as a result of the deal.
Sweden faces Venezuela on January 14th, followed by two matches against Ecuador.
