Cheltenham Town have completed a double loan swoop on the Premier League by signing Lewis Montrose and Josh Payne.
Montrose has arrived at Whaddon Road from Wigan Athletic and fellow midfielder Payne has joined from West Ham United.
New Cheltenham boss Martin Allen has been looking to increase his midfield options after losing David Bird to injury for up to two months.
Both his new recruits could feature against Stockport County on Saturday and Montrose is eager to build up his first-team experience.
"I'm hoping to be in contention for the first team, and to gain some vital experience," Montrose told Wigan's official website.
"Martin Allen is a good manager and I'm hoping I can get some playing time under my belt."
Montrose has made two appearances in the Carling Cup for Wigan, while teenager Payne has yet to make his West Ham debut.
