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 â€śimmenseâ€ś improvement in Nicholls, both on and off the field, during his time at Sixfields.
â€śWeâ€™ve been very pleased with Leeâ€™s development at Northampton and it was an easy decision to allow him to stay down there,â€ť Martinez told the Wigan Evening Post.
â€śHe has adapted to first-team football magnificently, and itâ€™s 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€ť
