The promising midfielder has failed to break into the first-team set-up at Goodison Park and is now to appear in a couple of trial matches for the Second Division strugglers.
Schumacher has captained England and Everton from Under-15 to Under-19 levels and is a versatile performer who can operate anywhere in the midfield or back four.
The 19-year-old will appear for the Latics against Wigan Athletic in midweek, alongside fellow trialists James Curly from Oldham Town and Wes Wilkinson from Nantwich Town.
The Latics are also hopeful of reaching an agreement with Bolton to extend Jermaine Johnson's loan period.
The Jamaican international has proved a popular figure since his arrival at Boundary Park and Sheridan is confident that he can conclude a deal for the forward in time for Sunday's game with Grimsby Town.
