After a trip to the North East for their opening day fixture, Wigan Athletic have looked to Sunderland’s rivals for their latest arrival.
Latics have bolstered their ranks with the loan signing of Newcastle United defender Kell Watts.
The 21-year-old will be available for today’s fixture against Hull City.
Watts said: “I’ve met the lads and the gaffer and I’m really happy to be here.
“They’ve welcomed me in well which has been brilliant. I think what excited me when I knew Wigan were interested was the players that have come through the door and the management team as well. I thought it was a special group here and something I want to be a part of – winning games and keeping clean sheets.”
