Bristol Rovers have signed Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Lee Nicholls on a three-month loan.

Nicholls, 22, began his career at Wigan and has made 10 appearances for the Latics, including in the Championship.

He has also had loan spells with Accrington and Northampton.

"I've chased him for a while now, he is experienced and played in Northampton's play-off campaign and did very well," Bristol Rovers boss Darrell Clarke told BBC Radio Bristol.

"He played in the Europa League also and it is a little bit more experienced than Aaron Chapman, who I'd like to thank for his efforts.

"Lee comes in and gives us some consistency in that position now."
