McEachran joins Latics on loan deal.
Chelsea youngster Josh McEachran has joined Wigan on loan until the end of the season, the London club have confirmed.
It is a fourth consecutive loan spell for the youngster, who spent the first half of this season on loan at Watford but disappointed, managing just seven appearances for the Hornets.
McEachran made his Blues debut aged just 17 when he appeared as second-half substitute in the Blues’ Champions League win at Zilina in 2010 but after making his first Premier League appearance in the same season, the playmaker’s progression has faltered.
The youngster, 20, took part in England’s dismal under-21 European Championship campaign this summer but, with a host of players in front of him at Chelsea, it seems unlikely McEachran will make the breakthrough at Stamford Bridge in the near future.
