Wigan have snapped up Chelsea’s Josh McEachran on loan until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old has impressed during a loan spell at Watford earlier this season where he made five league starts and two substitute appearances.
But with his first team chances limited at Stamford Bridge, the midfielder has decided to drop back down to the Championship to get some regular first team football.
McEachran has previously been on a successful loan spell at Swansea before joining Middlesbrough last season.
But now the former Chelsea Academy product will get the chance to show the Wigan fans his undoubted talent that made his a first team regular at the Riverside – and move a bit closer to his Coronation Street girlfriend Brooke Vincent.
