Wigan Athletic have been fined £40,000 by the Football Association over agency activity in the signing of Marc-Antoine Fortune.

The charge relates to the activity of Willie McKay during last summer's free signing of 32-year-old Fortune from West Bromwich Albion.

Fortune has made 36 appearances in the Championship for the Latics, scoring four goals.
