Manchester United starlet agrees season-long stay at DW Stadium

Wigan Athletic are delighted to announce Nick Powell as the club’s eleventh signing of the summer transfer window, who arrives on a season-long loan from Manchester United. 

The 19-year old signed for the Old Trafford club in 2012 and scored on his club debut against Latics at Old Trafford back in September.

Owen Coyle said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Nick to Wigan Athletic, and thank Manchester United for allowing a player whom they have invested a large sum of money in and has incredible talent, to join us for the season.

“We’re all excited to be offering him the opportunity to play football at a high level and for him to continue his development here at the club.”

Powell began his career at Crewe Alexandra, making his senior debut against Cheltenham in August 2010, and scoring his first professional goal against AFC Wimbledon in October the following year.

A goal in the 2012 League Two Play-Off Final against Cheltenham at Wembley helped Crewe win promotion at the third tier, before his move to Old Trafford.
