Hopefully the first piece of good news from tonight for Wigan, with 20 year-old striker Will Keane signing on loan till January to give us some necessary cover up front heading into a tough list of fixtures. The striker who has struggled with injuries will hope to try and get himself into the Latics starting lineup.

A player with plenty of talent the Englishman has already netted twice for the under 21's this season against Finland and San Marino respectively, so the player has the ability to score goals for the club. It is just a case of him now doing just that.

In a run up to the 1st January where we play no less than ten game it is going to be crucial to have has many players on top form as possible, and with only two strikers before to do, getting extra cover was a massive must.

Hopefully Will can replicate the form shown by his Manchester United teammate Nick Powell, and score a lot of goals in his months spell at the club.
