Vitalfootball reports that Wigan Athletic will announce a new shirt sponsorship deal at a press conference to be held at the JJB Stadium on Monday at 13:00.

The name of the new sponsor is a closely guarded secret, but rumoured to be a Norwegian company. Hyundai were also believed to be in negotiations to be the club sponsors and have their logo on the team shirts next season.

The shirt sponsorship deal is believed to be worth £800,000 for the 09/10 season with a clause to extend the shirt sponsorship.

The press conference will also see the re-naming of the stadium from the JJB to the DW Stadium and this will take place with immediate effect.

It is also expected that the club will soon announce that Vandanel will be their new kit manufacturers for the 09/10 season.

A Premiership team wearing Vandanel? That\'s a bit like the Queen hosting a visiting head of state and phoning out for a pizza. :unsure:

So for Wigan, that\'ll be the 4th different kid provider in as many seasons. First it was JJB, then that failed (although the shirt was quite nice), then it was Umbro who made an awful shirt last season, this season, they\'ve got Champion, who have made a great kit. I can understand why they\'re switching sponsors and all that, but come on now, Vandane?!?!l You\'ve got to be fu*king kidding me.
