Everton midfielder Francisco Junior has extended his loan spell with League One club Wigan until 16 January.

The 23-year-old has featured in every league game since joining from the Premier League side on a one-month loan, along with Jonjoe Kenny.

The Portugal Under-21 international started his career at Benfica before moving to the Toffees in 2012.

"Cisco has been a revelation since he's arrived," Latics manager Gary Caldwell told his club's website.

"When we found out there was a possibility of extending the loan, it was something I was very keen to get sorted."
