Wigan Athletic have today completed deals that see Mike Pollitt and Rakish Bingham depart the club on loan.
Pollitt joins fellow Championship club Barnsley on a month-long deal and is set to make his debut for the club tonight against Southampton in the Second Round of the Capital One Cup at Oakwell, whilst Bingham heads north to join Scottish Championship side Falkirk until the end of the year with the opportunity to play senior football for the first time.
Owen Coyle said:
“Both deals are great opportunities for the players; hopefully Mike gets the game time he needs which will help him keep competition strong in the goalkeeping department when he returns. He’s the ultimate professional and you wouldn’t believe he’s 41 when you see him in training, which is testament to how well he looks after himself.
“Rakish has fantastic potential and the experience he’ll gain from a tough league with Falkirk will serve him very well for his future development.”
