Brown's a Latic

Academy star Marcus Browne has joined Wigan Athletic on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old forward will spend the second half of the campaign with the Latics having completed a short-term move on Friday.

“Marcus is a young player with great potential and will strengthen our group," said Athletic boss Warren Joyce.

"We have been watching him and had no hesitation in bringing him here once we found out there was a chance of something being agreed."

Browne will team up with former Hammer Jussi Jaaskelainen and fellow loanee Reece Burke at the DW Stadium.

* Meanwhile another former Hammer, Danny Whitehead, left Wigan yesterday ahead of a spell on loan at Macclesfield Town, the club he joined the Latics from on a permanent basis last year.
