The 2009–10 English football season is Wigan Athletic's fifth consecutive season in the Premier League.

After Steve Bruce left the club to join Sunderland,[1] the club approached Swansea City manager Roberto Martínez. The Spaniard signed a three-year deal with Wigan on 15 June, bringing four backroom staff with him.[2]

The new manager's first signing was Jordi Gómez, who signed from RCD Espanyol.[3] The club then confirmed three pre-season fixtures, all away, to Crewe Alexandra, Preston North End and Norwich City.[4]

The departure of Ecuadorian winger Antonio Valencia was confirmed on 30 June, as the 23-year old moved to Manchester United for a club-record fee rumoured to be around £ 16 million.[5][6] The club then announced the signing of Hendry Thomas from Honduran side Club Deportivo Olimpia on a three-year deal.[7]

Trinidadian striker Jason Scotland became Martínez's third signing when he agreed a two-year deal on 15 July.[8] Republic of Ireland under-21 international James McCarthy then agreed a five-year deal, joining from Scottish Premier League side Hamilton Academical.[9]

Chelsea winger Scott Sinclair signed a one-year loan deal with the club, and Martínez also signed Spaniards Román Golobart and Abian Serrano. Rayo Vallecano centre-half Antonio Amaya was also snapped up on the eve of the new season on a three-year deal.[10][11][12] Meanwhile, former manager Steve Bruce brought midfielder Lee Cattermole to Sunderland for £6 million.[13]

There was further movement in the transfer market as Martínez signed defensive midfielder Mohamed Diamé, after complications suffered with Diamé's medical.[14][15] The club then confirmed the departure of midfielder Michael Brown to Portsmouth after two years and 64 appearances.[16]
