Defender completes move to Lancashire side...
Leeds United can confirm that defender Jason Pearce has joined Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee.
Pearce, a summer 2012 signing from Portsmouth, made 113 appearances during his two-and-a-half-year stay at Elland Road.
The 27-year-old netted twice for United, with both goals coming last season against Derby County and Middlesbrough respectively.
He had featured 23 times in all competitions for United this season and captained the side for the opening months of the campaign.
But Pearce found himself among the substitutes in recent weeks following a brief spell on the sidelines through injury.
The club would like to thank Jason for his contribution here and wish him all the very best for the future.
