Collison joins Wigan on loan

Wigan have confirmed the signing of West Ham midfielder Jack Collison on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 25-year-old was in the DW Stadium stands for Tuesday night's pulsating 3-3 Championship draw with Yeovil which denied Latics a ninth straight win in all competitions with five goals scored inside the game's final 12 minutes.

Collison's arrival will bolster boss Uwe Rosler's midfield options following the recent long-term injuries to Ben Watson, Chris McCann and Roger Espinoza.

"After we lost Ben, Chris and Roger, we have now brought in two great signings in Ryan Tunnicliffe and Jack Collison," Rosler told the club's official website.

"Jack is exactly what we needed, he can play in a few different positions, has terrific experience of both the Premier League and the Championship and will heighten competition for places as we move into the crucial last few weeks of the season."
