Kapo loaned out to Boulogne

Wigan Athletic winger Olivier Kapo has left England to join French club Boulogne on loan until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old former Birmingham City forward has struggled to make his mark with the Latics, making just 12 starts during his time at the DW Stadium.

Kapo told his new club's official website:"I want to fight as I did at Wigan. I can't wait to sense the smell of the dressing room and above all the smell of victory with Boulogne.

"I have the fortune that a top-flight team put out their hand to me and I seized it.

"Not knowing too much about the club, I found out about it by asking other players. They all only told me good things about it.

"So I didn't hesitate long before signing. I really hope we are going to stay up, it's feasible. In any case, I'm really happy to be here."
