Owen Coyle has hailed Manchester United’s Nick Powell as an “incredible talent” after the midfielder secured a season-long loan deal at Wigan Athletic.

Sir Alex Ferguson plucked the 19-year-old from League Two outfit Crewe Alexandra in June 2012 after the midfielder scored an impressive 16 goals in 45 appearances for Dario Gradi’s side in the 2011-12 campaign.

The England Under-21 international made his Premier League bow following the £6m move as a second-half substitute against Wigan Athletic in September, scoring on his debut as the Red Devils ran out 4-0 winners.

Despite making an eye-catching start to his United career and earning favourable comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo, Powell only made a further five appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions last season.

And Coyle is delighted to be able to avail of Powell’s services for the 2013/14 campaign.

“We’re delighted to welcome Nick to Wigan Athletic, and thank Manchester United for allowing a player whom they have invested a large sum of money in and has incredible talent, to join us for the season,” said Coyle.

“We’re all excited to be offering him the opportunity to play football at a high level and for him to continue his development here at the club.”
