Fulham midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe is happy with his loan move to Wigan Athletic.

The former Manchester United junior, who hails from Heywood, didn't need much persuasion to join the Latics' promotion push.

"I'm delighted to be here, being a north-west lad it's a great move for me," he said.

"I can't wait to get involved in the promotion push and help in any way I can. I'm obviously coming into a side that is in great form.

"If they can win their game in hand they can get into the play-offs.

"The general feeling around the club is they need to push into the play-offs, and hopefully I can help them do that."
