Wigan Athletic have signed Jack Collison on loan from West Ham United for the rest of the season.

The 25-year old midfielder has headed to the DW Stadium after making just nine Premier League appearances for the Hammers this season.

Latics boss Uwe Rosler sees him as a great addition to his squad which are currently placed fifth on the Championship table.

"After we lost Ben (Watson), Chris (McCann) and Roger (Espinoza), 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."
