Wigan boss Owen Coyle has said Nick Powell's time away from Old Trafford will benefit all three parties.

The United youngster joined the Championship outfit on a season-long loan and could make his Latics debut at the weekend.

Powell was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson last summer for a fee that could rise to £6million but struggled to break into the first team, making just six appearances in his debut season.

Ahead of their game with Leicester on Saturday, Coyle believes the move will be beneficial to all involved, he explained: "It's a win for us getting a quality player like that, a win for Nick because he gets league time at a very high level, and a win for Manchester United.

"With league time under his belt and European experience, he'll go back there a better player."

Former Crewe youngster, Powell, can play in midfield or attack but has found himself further down the pecking order following the arrival of David Moyes and the big-money signing of Marouane Fellaini.

Coyle has experience of taking promising youngsters on loan having taken both Daniel Sturridge and Jack Wilshere on loan in his time at Bolton Wanderers.

Both have gone on to earn full England caps having established themselves in the Premier League and Coyle is keen to continue to aid the development of younger players.

He said: "You want to help young players develop. You think back to when you were a young player and all the help you had from various coaches and managers throughout your career.

"If you can pass on any knowledge and experience to help young players go and have a glittering career, it certainly gives you a good feeling, because maybe you've played a little part in their development."
