Shaquile Coulthirst joins Latics on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
- Deal agreed for Shaquile Coulthirst to join Wigan Athletic on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
- England Under 19 striker Shaquile Coulthirst joins from Tottenham Hotspur.
- “He brings something new to the group, and will provide extra competition,” says Gary Caldwell.
The 20-year-old has joined ahead of Sunday’s Sky Bet League One clash at home to Doncaster Rovers and will go straight into the match day squad.
Coulthirst is highly thought of at White Hart Lane but with the club looking to place him on loan, Latics manager Gary Caldwell feel this is a move which will benefit both parties.
“He’s a young player full of potential and needs experience, we will see how he progresses. His qualities will certainly bring something new to the group and provide competition up front. He’s here for three months then we will see how things go.”
Coulthirst is a product of the Tottenham Academy, and has already enjoyed loan spells at Leyton Orient, Torquay United, Southend United and York City.
