Young Wigan keeper Nicholls extends contract

Wigan keeper Lee Nicholls has signed a one-year extension to his contract, keeping him at the club until 2015. The 20-year-old has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Latics but he is currently first choice at League Two Northampton, where he is on loan.

Latics boss Roberto Martinez told the clubs official website: "Seeing Lee's progress from a young age has been a joy and to have him stay here and continue his hard work is great news.

"Lee is a great goalkeeper and he has shown that at Northampton this season. He has had some outstanding performances and we are really looking forward to continuing to work with him."
