Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is happy with Lee Nicholls' progress on-loan at Northampton.
Martinez admits it was a no-brainer to sanction the deal after seeing an âimmenseâ improvement in Nicholls, both on and off the field, during his time at Sixfields.
âWeâve been very pleased with Leeâs development at Northampton and it was an easy decision to allow him to stay down there,â Martinez told the Wigan Evening Post.
âHe has adapted to first-team football magnificently, and itâs important we allow him to continue to develop as a player and a person. We still have a 24-hour recall option should we have any injuries here but he will be there until the end of the season.â
