China international midfielder Sun Xiang has taken on a week-long trial at Premier League club Wigan as manager Paul Jewell looks at strengthening his options.

Sun is hoping to become the latest Chinese player to make his name in Great Britain, with Sun Jihai at Manchester City for the last three and a half years, while Du Wei arrived at Celtic in August from Shenhua.

"I think it's every Chinese player's dream to play abroad at some point in his career," said Sun on the Asian Football Confederation's official website.

"My national team-mates have told me about the life at professional clubs abroad.

"They said these clubs have a completely different type of management when compared to Chinese clubs and that players in China are more strictly supervised.

"They told me that in clubs abroad players know what they can do and what they can't do, so they don't need the club to strictly supervise their life. There's more professionalism."
