Jordan signs for second month

Jordan Obita has extended his loan with Latics for a second month.

Parent-club Reading have allowed the 19-year-old winger to renew his emergency youth loan until Monday, April 1st.

Obita (pictured) made his debut for Latics as a substitute in the defeat at Walsall on Saturday, February 2nd.

He has made a total of four starts, including both FA Cup with Budweiser ties against Everton, and two substitute appearances.

Obita's one goal was a massively important one helping Latics draw 2-2 against Everton at Boundary Park.

All the paperwork has been completed and the loan will, as usual, be subject to Premier League and Football League clearance.
