WIGAN, ENGLAND – Wigan Athletic’s Juan Carlos García will spend the 2014/15 season on loan at Spanish second-division club Tenerife, the English Championship side announced Sunday.

The 26-year-old Honduras international signed a three-year contract with the Latics in July 2013 after three years with Olimpia.  He has made only one appearance for the club in the Capital One Cup against Manchester City in September 2013. 

Before joining Olimpia in July 2010, Garcia started his career with Marathon.  The defender scored one goal with the Lions in the CONCACAF Champions League (home v CD FAS, August 2, 2012).

Garcia, who played in the 2009, 2011 and 2013 editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, appeared in two matches at the 2014 FIFA World Cup against Ecuador and Switzerland.
