Wigan manager Roberto Martinez believes that Tom Cleverley possesses all of the characteristics to prove a success at the DW Stadium.
The Manchester United midfielder has officially agreed a season-long loan deal with the Latics, as revealed by skysports.com earlier on transfer deadline day.
Martinez is pleased to have signed Cleverley and thinks that the England Under 21 international will be a positive acquisition.
"Tom is a very exciting young player and we are delighted he is coming to us," said the Wigan boss.
"He can play in a number of positions and will provide us with some good new options, and add great competition to the squad.
"We have been watching him for some time and feel he is the right sort of player to join our squad; young, hungry, desperate to play for the club in the Premier League and to grow with us."
Cleverley has previously had loan spells at Leicester and Watford in the last two seasons.
