Wigan boss Mackay delighted with swoop for Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo

Wigan Athletic have signed Liverpool midfielder Sheyi Ojo on-loan.

Ojo becomes Latics' fifth signing this month following the arrivals of Liam Ridgewell, Chris Herd, Billy Mckay and Jason Pearce and manager Malky Mackay says he is delighted with the capture of an exciting young player:

"I spoke to Brendan Rodgers at length about Sheyi", he said, "and we both agreed that this is the next stage of his development. Brendan sees him as a Liverpool player of the future and will take him into his squad in the summer. We both hope that his time at Wigan Athletic can be a productive one for both parties.

"I have watched him and was excited by what I saw in terms of his pace, touch and awareness. Now it's a question of integrating him with our squad and managing his progress carefully."
