Wigan Athletic boss Owen Coyle is ready to make Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell his first signing at the DW.

The Sun says he is confident of completing a season-long deal for teenager Powell.

Despite a lack of opportunities at Old Trafford, United rate the 19-year-old highly and will not let him go permanently.

But they are aware Powell needs regular first-team football to aid his development and that is something Coyle can offer.

Coyle will speak to United chief David Moyes to finalise terms next week.
