Wigan have completed the signings of Ryan Colclough and Sam Morsy from League One rivals Crewe and Chesterfield, respectively.

Winger Colclough has penned a three-and-a-half year deal at the DW Stadium, while midfielder Morsy has signed a contract until the summer of 2018.

They are players we have been keeping a close eye on so to be able to get both over the line now is a major boost for us.

We saw their talent first hand in matches this season and they both were both stand out players in matches against Chesterfield and Crewe respectively.

They are exactly the type of players we want at Wigan Athletic, young and hungry, but with plenty of experience at this level at the same time as having the ability to progress and play in a higher division. Hopefully of course, that will be with us.

Wigan on brink of League One after Wolves loss

Benik Afobe grabbed the only goal of a scrappy Sky Bet Championship game at the DW Stadium to keep Wolves in the play-off hunt and all but confirm Wigan's relegation.

The Latics live to fight another day after their 1-0 defeat, on account of relegation rivals Rotherham and Millwall only drawing.

But it would require a remarkable series of scores in the final week of the campaign for them to escape the drop into League One.
