Confirmed Transfer: Ryan Tunnicliffe Joins Latics from Fulham

We brought you the news yesterday that Ryan Tunnicliffe had been allowed to speak with us and Ipswich regarding a loan move to one of us till the end of the season. Well the news today is that we won the race.

Ryan and James go head to head as Wigan beat Ipswich 2-0 earlier in the season.

Ben Watson's double leg brake meant a spot opened up in our midfield not a massive one mind you but one did open up. With Uwe Rosler looking to keep Fraser Fyvie and Rob Kiernan out of the first team for the current future the gaffer had been looking for other options, and a loan signing of the former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe appears to have been at the top of his list.

Ryan did massively impress at Ipswich in the first part of the season and was more or less and ever present for the tractor boys under Mick McCarthy. Now however with the option to go back to Portman Road or join Latics the midfielder has decided to join Wigan till the end of the season.

Uwe Rosler speaking to the clubs official website said:

"Ryan is a very promising prospect player who has experience in the Championship, and after we lost Ben, I am delighted we have got someone who is so football-educated, having come through the ranks at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson."

"He is a different type of player from Ben but will definitely add a new dimension to us."
