"Levante UD has transferred Kone to English club Wigan Athletic, thanks for everything Arouna," Levante wrote on their official Twitter feed.

Kone, a strong and pacy forward with a powerful shot, netted 15 goals for Levante last season, helping the modest Valencia-based club qualify for European competition for the first time.

The 28-year-old had an injury-disrupted stint at Sevilla and won the Dutch championship three times with PSV Eindhoven.
