Callum Lang has returned to parent club Wigan Athletic after being recalled from his loan at Motherwell.

The forward moved to Fir Park in the summer on what was to be a season-long loan deal but he is heading back down south after his stay was cut short.

A brief statement on Motherwell’s official website read: “Callum Lang has returned to Wigan Athletic.

“The forward has been recalled by the English League One club, having moved to Fir Park on loan in the summer.

“Lang scored five goals in 21 appearances, becoming a regular starter in the forward line.

“We thank Callum for his contributions and wish him all the best for the future.”

Lang told Wigan’s website that he was keen to earn a first team place after picking up valuable experience during his time in Scotland.

“I am looking forward to the games, I can’t wait for the games to come back because I think I have got a massive point to prove at the club,” he said.

“It’s really nice to be back; it feels like a long time but I come back to a squad that is full of players and staff that I have been with since I was a kid really.

“I really enjoyed the start to the season that we had at Motherwell; it was a good experience for me, I got to play in Europe as well, which was exciting.

“I want to bring that experience back to Wigan with me; I know a lot of the lads, we have a young team but – similar to myself – it’s a group that wants to work hard and make a career in the game. We will all be fighting for the shirt.”
