Wigan have signed Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley on a season-long loan.

The England Under-21 international has previously had loan spells at Leicester and Watford in the last two seasons and has now gone to the DW Stadium to continue gaining experience.

"Tom is a very exciting young player and we are delighted he is coming to us," said Wigan manager Roberto Martinez.

"He can play in a number of positions and will provide us with some good new options, and add great competition to the squad.

"We have been watching him for some time and feel he is the right sort of player to join our squad; young, hungry, desperate to play for the club in the Premier League and to grow with us."
