Young defender Jonathan Burn is excited to get going after signing on loan until January 1.
The 20-year-old joins on loan from Middlesbrough where he was on the fringes of the first team.
Captain of the Boro under 21 side, Burn cannot wait to get going with Latics.
He said: “I’m going to have to work hard, earn my place and earn my shirt so hopefully I can get into the first team.
“I’m good in the air, good on the ball and I’m a really strong defender and hopefully I can bring something different to the team.”
Burn has yet to make a competitive appearance for his parent side but he is held in high regard by the hierarchy at Boro.
“I have been away with the Middlesbrough team this summer to Marbella on their pre-season tour. That was a really good trip and I can’t wait to get going here now.”
