Man United Striker Angelo Henriquez Joins Wigan Athletic On Loan Spell

Old Trafford youngster makes DW Stadium switch.

Check in to Manchester United vs Liverpool

Man United have loaned out Chilean international Angelo Henriquez to Wigan Athletic until the end of the season according to the BBC.

Clearly Sir Alex Ferguson feels there is more to be gained by sending Angelo Henriquez to Wigan on a loan deal than the young striker representing his country at the South American Under 20 Championship and a short term move to the DW Stadium should give the Chilean international a good grounding in Premier League experience.

Roberto Martinez could well feel he could do with some attacking support though his Latics side did manage to net three times at Villa Park on the weekend.

Wigan Athletic sit in 16th spot, just one point off the relegation zone and could well be looking to beef up their squad in next month’s transfer window.

Having arrived at Old Trafford in the summer Chilean forward Angelo Henriquez the 18 year old has been seeing action only in the Man United Under 21 set-up, this is despite the fact that the teenager is a full international. Therefore the chance to play at Premier League level suits all parties.
