– Wigan manager Uwe Rosler
I think for him it is a very, very good place to be where you can play on your first loan week-in, week-out. I think if he goes in the Premier League now I don't think he will get that amount of playing time, like he gets with us.
We have high aspirations as a club, where we demand a lot and where we also want to have a very good training culture, a culture of excellence, where a player like Nick can flourish.
I really hope that David, who I have a good relationship with - I loaned three players from him when he was at Everton, will see it the same way and that Nick can progress with us.
Wigan have exited the Europa League after a 2-1 defeat at Maribor.
Uwe Rosler's men led thanks to Jordi Gomez's penalty four minutes before half-time. But Dejan Mezga levelled from the spot two minutes later, then Zeljko Filipovic's goal just before the hour mark crushed Wigan's hopes.
