Manchester United's Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez will complete a six-month loan move to Wigan Athletic once the transfer window opens.

The 18-year-old is yet to feature for the Old Trafford outfit since joining from Universidad de Chile.

The Chilean will act as cover at the DW Stadium, with fellow forward Around Kone absent at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Henriquez has been the denied the opportunity to represent his country at the South American Under-20 Championships as United think the move will be better for his development as a footballer.
