Atlanta United FC Sign Wigan Midfielder

Just because you aren't actually going to have to submit your lineup card until next season doesn't mean that you can't go ahead and start filling it out. Today Atlanta United FC announced the signing of experienced Irish midfielder Chris McCann. The 28 year old will go back out on loan with an undisclosed team until next season, but will presumably be ready to go for Atlanta's opening kick. The 28 year old has spent his entire career in England, training as a youth at Burnley before going on to make 238 appearances and scoring 27 goals for the first team. McCann moved to Wigan in 2013 and appeared in 66 matches for the Lactics. McCann has one cap for Ireland at the under 19 level.
