Skysports.com understands Wigan have agreed a deal to sign Manchester United youngster Tom Cleverley on loan.
A host of Premier League clubs, including Newcastle and Bolton have been chasing the talented 21-year-old, but Wigan look to have won the race for his signature.
Cleverley has yet to make a first-team appearance for United, but he impressed in pre-season and he is tipped for a big future at United
Cleverley enjoyed an excellent season on loan at Watford last season, where he scored 11 goals and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is willing to loan him out again so that he can get regular first-team action under his belt.
The England Under 21 international is highly-rated at Old Trafford and he was handed a new three-year deal earlier this summer.
