Wigan fined £40,000 for breaching agent rules

Wigan have been fined £40,000 by the Football Association for breaching agent regulations.

The Latics admitted a charge in relation to their signing of Marc-Antoine Fortune in July, with the conduct of agent Willie McKay going against FA regulations.

The FA confirmed in a statement that an independent regulatory commission hearing had fined the football club, while McKay has "had his overseas agent registration suspended for nine months", with the punishment "stayed for a period of two years".
