Championship side Wigan have signed Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair on loan until May and Norwich City midfielder Josh Murphy for one month.

Sinclair, 18, joined the Reds from West Brom aged 14 and made his debut against his old club in 2012, becoming Liverpool's youngest ever player.

Former England Under-20 international Murphy, 20, has played 16 times in all competitions for Norwich this season.

Wigan are currently 22nd in the league, six points below 21st-placed Rotherham.

Latics boss Malky Mackay told the club website: "We are a club who will nurture a young player with potential. We are all hopeful that (Sinclair) can make a good contribution during his time here.

"Josh will be another great addition to what is still a small squad here. He is a great young talent."
