Wigan Athletic boss Owen Coyle is delighted with their one-month loan deal for Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton.

Latics have moved to bolster their wide options with Scotland international Shaun Maloney facing an extend spell out as he remains troubled by a hip injury.

"Marc has shown what an outstanding player he is time and again in the Premier League, and he is someone I have tried to sign in the past, so I'm delighted to bring him on board to strengthen our squad," Coyle told Wigan's official website.

"He's at a young age with the potential and scope to get even better; he's quick, dangerous and pleasing on the eye and I feel he's going to really enhance the attacking options we have at Wigan Athletic, particularly in light of Shaun Maloney's absence."
