WIGAN Athletic have confirmed the loan signing of Watford midfielder Sean Murray.

The 21-year-old has made nearly a century of appearances for the Hornets since his debut in 2011.

However, Murray spent most of last season on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury last November.

He watched on as his team-mates - including ex-Latics man Ben Watson - won promotion to the Premier League.

And he will hope to kickstart his career at the DW Stadium, having signed for an initial 28-day period that could well be extended.

Although born in Hertfordshire, Murray has represented the Ireland at under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels.
