Confirmed Transfer: Harry Maguire Extends Loan Deal

Defenders are actually in short supply for us. With Rob Kiernan and James Tavernier out on loan and following the departure of Thomas Rogne this week; keeping hold of one of our top performers was a must.

Initially the former Sheffield United defender was only signed on a months loan deal. Yet following some impressive performances at the heart of our defence alongside Jason Pearce, Wigan have come to an agreement with Hull City to extend the loan deal of Harry Maguire to the end of the season.

The defender who has impressed since taking to the fray in the win away at Reading last month, and has been ever present since, will look to continue his development here with Latics as we look to try and stay in the Championship.

Malcky Mackay speaking to the official site said:

"I need to thank Steve Bruce again who has allowed Harry to stay with us,"

"We both agree that the best thing for his development is to get minutes under his belt and he has certainly been a powerful presence for us."

Hopefully more impressive performances to come from the 6ft4 England Under-21 international as the Latics head to Rotherham United for what is a crucial league game this weekend.
