Wigan sign Manchester United’s Reece James

Wigan Athletic have signed Manchester United defender Reece James on a three-year deal

The 21-year-old spent time on loan in the Championship last season at Rotherham and Huddersfield, and had a stint at Carlisle in 2013.


Reece is a young player with a bright future,” said Wigan boss Gary Caldwell. “He has been schooled by one of the best academies around and has impressed both at under-21 level and whilst on loan,” he told the club website.


“He is another who will strengthen competition on that left side, and has played as a full-back, or in a wing back role. Once again, there were clubs after him so we’re delighted to add him to the squad.”
