MANCHESTER United starlet Donald Love has joined Wigan Athletic on loan.

The 20-year-old Scotland under-21 international will be available for Saturday’s visit of Walsall after signing for two months.

A full-back, he joins after Jonjoe Kenny returned to parent club Everton.

“Jonjoe’s departure and the long-term injury to Kevin McNaughton has left a gap in the squad for a specialist right-sided defender and in that respect Donald fits the bill.,” said Latics boss Gary Caldwell.

“He’s a young player still learning but we have had him watched and we believe he has immense potential. He’s quick, strong and can play in several different positions defensively. Let’s hope he can start realising some of that potential here.”
