Crewe Alexandra’s highly-rated winger Ryan Colclough has signed for League One rivals Wigan Athletic.

The 21-year-old switched to the Latics on a three-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee including a significant sell-on clause.

Colclough has already struck eight goals for the Railwaymen this season, making him top scorer at Gresty Road.

He originally made his debut against Leyton Orient in September 2012 and has since claimed thirteen goals in 68 appearances.

However, a troublesome hip and groin injury restricted his progress and found him absent for an extended period between November 2013 and March 2015.
