Man Utd midfielder set to join Wigan

Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell is set to join Championship side Wigan on a season-long loan.

Powell was expected to break into the first-team at Old Trafford this season, but has been struggling with a injury in pre-season.

Wigan boss Owen Coyle said: "I am always loathe to talk about everybody elseís players.

"Everyone knows that me and David [Moyes] have a very good relationship. He [Powell] is a hugely talented player. If and when he becomes available, I would certainly love to bring a player of that calibre to the football club if it is possible.

"He goes away with England under-21s Iím led to believe this week - somebody told me that."
