Collison joins Wigan on loan

Midfielder Jack Collison has joined Sky Bet Championship side Wigan Athletic on loan until the end of the season.

West Ham United's Wales international could make his Latics debut in Saturday's home league fixture with his hometown club Watford at the DW Stadium.

Collison could also feature in Wigan's FA Cup with Budweiser semi-final with Arsenal - the club he made his West Ham debut against on New Year's Day 2008 - at Wembley on 12 April.

The 25-year-old is not cup-tied and is therefore eligible for the tie, which will see Wigan attempt to reach their second consecutive FA Cup final after winning last year's competition.

Uwe Rosler's Wigan have been in outstanding form, climbing into the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off places and giving themselves an opportunity to return to the Barclays Premier League after a one-year absence.

The No10 has already spent one loan spell in the Championship this term, making four appearances for AFC Bournemouth in October 2013.

Collison has played 15 times for West Ham this season, including ten times in the Barclays Premier League five of the Club's six Capital One Cup ties. He has also played twice for Wales in international friendlies.
