Wigan midfielder Denny Landzaat has joined Dutch club Feyenoord in a deal worth £1million.

The Holland international, who cost the Latics £2.3million from AZ Alkmaar in summer 2006, made 54 appearances for the club and scored five goals.

He returned to Holland on Thursday for talks and it is expected he will pen a contract for three-and-a-half years.

Surprise

"This will maybe come as a surprise to people," assistant manager Eric Black said.

"But it was an offer that was very interesting for him, and the gaffer has agreed to let him go."
