Manchester United starlet completes Wigan switch

Published Add your comment

Manchester United youngster Nick Powell has completed a season-long loan move to Wigan Athletic, according to Latics chairman Dave Whelan

The 19-year-old, who signed for the Red Devils from Crewe last summer, made just six appearances for United last season.

And, now Powell will be given first-team opportunities playing in the Championship. Wigan have previously had success with United youngsters, as they took Tom Cleverley on a season-long loan in 2010.

Powell would have been moved further down the pecking order at Old Trafford, with a deal for Everton's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini likely to be completed before the close of the transfer window at 11pm tonight.

The English star will also be given European experience at the Latics as they are involved in this year's Europa League, after winning the FA Cup last season. 

Powell could make his debut for the club on September 14 as Wigan travel to Leicester City.
