MK Dons have signed Wigan winger Ryan Colclough on a season-long loan deal.
Colclough, 21, scored 12 goals in 36 Sky Bet League One starts for Crewe before joining Wigan in January and helping the Latics win promotion to the Championship.
Dons boss Karl Robinson told mkdons.com: "I'm ecstatic. He's somebody who I tried to sign last season and has been one of our main targets for six months.
"He made his second-ever professional appearance against us and I remember watching his debut while we prepared for that game against Crewe.
"He can play off both sides. He comes from a club like Wigan, who play a similar style and he started at Crewe, which means he's been developed properly.
"He's very direct. He's aggressive in his finishing and I think he's certainly someone who can make us a better team.
"He'll make us more dynamic offensively, being a goalscoring wide player."
MK Dons later announced the signing of fellow Wigan youngster Jack Hendry on loan until January.
