The BBC have confirmed that United starlet Nick Powell will join Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan deal. The 19-year old midfielder scored on his Manchester United Premier League debut last season against Wigan, he also made his full Champions League debut last season.
Powell suffered a string of injuries after the New Year, halting his development. The player made his return to action for United’s U21s last week, scoring in a win over WBA.
He’ll certainly get game time at Wigan, as they’ll play 46 league games, with domestic cups, and the Europa League on top of that. With Carrick, Anderson and Cleverley already ahead of him, and new signings likely, a move away is definitely in his best interests.
