Wigan Athletic have signed West Ham United defender Reece Burke on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old has made 11 first-team appearances for the Hammers, including in this year's Europa League.

He spent last season on loan at League One club Bradford, where he won player of the year after playing 36 times.

"The fact West Ham have signed him up to a four-year-deal tells you how highly they rate him," Latics boss Gary Caldwell told the club website.
