Cho Won-hee hoping to make Premier League debut

South Korea midfielder Cho Won-hee could make his Premier League debut for Wigan on Saturday in the club's match at Sunderland.
The 25-year-old Cho has joined the northwest England club after being granted a work permit and could start on Saturday in place of the suspended Lee Cattermole.
"I could tell straight away that he was a good player," Wigan manager Steve Bruce said. "He can make a significant impact in the Premier League.
"He's fast, strong, determined and has a terrific attitude on and off the field."
Cho joined Wigan on a 2 1/2-year contract following his free transfer from K-League side Suwon Blue Wings as a potential replacement for Wilson Palacios, who switched to Tottenham in January.
Wigan is ninth in the 20-team Premier League with 35 points, just four behind seventh place and potential qualification for European competition.
