Fulham midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe has joined Wigan Athletic on loan until the end of the season.

Tunnicliffe, who arrived at Craven Cottage from Manchester United in the final few hours of the January transfer window, has made two appearances for the Whites.

He made his debut in the 2-2 draw against United before lining up in the narrow 3-2 defeat against Liverpool.

Prior to joining the Whites, the 21-year-old made 29 loan appearances for Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet Championship.

The youngster now links up with Uwe Rösler’s Wigan, with the Latics currently residing in seventh place in the Championship and a point off the Play-Off places.

Latics manager Rosler told their official website: "Ryan is a very promising prospect player who has experience in the Championship, and I’m delighted we’ve got someone who is so football-educated, having come through the ranks at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson. He will definitely add a new dimension to us."
