Roberto Martinez has secured his second signing as Everton manager with the capture of Paraguayan international Antolin Alcaraz.
 
The experienced central defender has signed a two-year deal with the Blues after his contract with Wigan expired.

He has been granted a work permit and follows Arouna Kone in switching to the Blues this summer.
 
The new Everton chief knows Alcaraz well, having signed him for Wigan from Club Brugge in 2010.
 
The 30-year-old has been an international since 2008 and played in the 2010 World Cup before helping Paraguay to the final of the 2011 Copa America.

He made a total of 68 appearances in his three years at the DW Stadium, although he missed much of the 2012/13 campaign through injury.
 
But he was fit to take his place in the starting line-up for the FA Cup final victory over Manchester City.
 
He also netted the only goal of the game against Blackburn Rovers on 7 May 2012 - a strike which effectively secured Wigan's Premier League status and relegated the Ewood Park outfit.
 
His playing career began with Teniente Farina in Paraguay before moving to Racing Club in Argentina. He made the switch to Europe in 2002, first at Fiorentina before moving to Beira-Mar in Portugal's top flight.
 
He spent four years in Portugal, racking up over 100 appearances as the mainstay of their defence before switching to Club Brugge in 2007.
 
After three seasons in Belgium Martinez moved to add the 6ft 2ins stopper to his Wigan squad.

Alcaraz soon became a key player for the Latics with his six month absence because of a torn groin muscle midway through last season regarded as a major blow for Martinez's former club in the battle against relegation.

Antolin Alcaraz is pictured wearing the new 2013/14 Everton home shirt, which is available to pre-order now.

Kevin EvesHope this is just as cover for Jags/Distin. We already have a solid centreback pairing so no need to disrupt that.
