Wigan Athletic midfielder Danny Whitehead has joined League Two club club Cheltenham Town on loan.

The 22-year-old will spend next season at The Robins. The former West Ham man joined Latics in January but was immediately loaned back to National League side Macclesfield Town.

Cheltenham Manager Gary Johnson said: “He’s definitely ready for League Two. His game will fit our game perfectly.

“It’s a good move for him, because it will get him some much-needed experience, and it gives me good competition in my squad.”
