Kingson, 33, is currently a free agent after he was released by Blackpool in the summer but he is back in training at the DW Stadium as he looks to maintain his fitness.

"I have been training with Wigan for some days now to keep my fitness and make my reflexes sharp," Kingson told GHANAsoccernet. "I am not sitting at home and doing nothing.

"In our profession, one must be active at all times to ensure that when the chance comes you are ready to prove yourself. My agent and I are seriously looking for opportunities and when the chance arrives I will surely turn up knowing that I am ready for the challenge."

He added: "When I was at Wigan all the players, officials and coaches saw that I gave 100% to the team and was dedicated to the team.

"When I asked for the chance to train with them they didn't hesitate so I am very grateful to them. They don't treat me as if I am a stranger. They treat me as if I am part of the family and I know I am part of the family. Hopefully by the grace of God I can get a deal soon."

Kingson spent two years with Wigan after leaving Birmingham in 2008.
