The former Leyton Orient, Preston North End and Stevenage stopper has played 32 times in all competitions since moving to Latics, keeping 12 clean sheets.

Manager Paul Cook said: “Jamie has been excellent for us when called upon - having a number of quality goalkeepers at the club is obviously important.

“There is big competition for places amongst our goalkeepers and Nick Colgan has built a really healthy environment for the goalkeepers to work together to improve each other daily.”
