Notts County have signed 19-year-old Wigan defender Adam Long on an initial one-month loan.
The Isle of Man-born centre-back signed professionally for the Latics in the summer after a successful two-year scholarship with their academy.
He joined Wigan from his hometown side, St George’s AFC, ahead of 2017-18 and made his first-team debut the following October, starting in a 4-1 Checkatrade Trophy win against Middlesbrough.
“The manager wanted me to come here and it’s a big achievement in myself to feel wanted, so now I’ve got a point to prove,” said the new Notts recruit.
“There’s big history behind the club and I’m looking forward to being here, fighting for my place and hopefully pushing on for promotion.”
