Fyvie is a technically gifted but combatant midfielder, who for a player still in the early years of his career has grown to apply a confident maturity due to the number of games he has played at professional level for Aberdeen.


His first season at the DW Stadium saw him make eight appearances.


Fyvie made his Latics debut as a second half substitute against Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup and his next six appearances were all in cup competitions.


His first Latics start came against Bradford City in the same competition and he went on to make four further starts, all in the FA Cup.


The midfielder's first league appearance came as a 69th minute substitute in the final game of the 2012/13 season against Aston Villa.

The Aberdeen born player made his professional debut just four months after his 16th birthday as the Dons faced Hamilton Academical in August 2009.

After making a positive impact on the team, Fyvie was given further chances and by January 2010 he had netted his first SPL goal, making him the youngest ever to do so as he opened the scoring in a 3-0 victory against Hearts.

His power off the ball and ability to read the game make him the prime candidate for the centre of Latics' midfield and the experience gained whilst at Aberdeen make him a hot prospect.

Fyvie's talents are highly regarded beyond club level and on the international scene he has represented Scotland at under 17 and under 19 levels, the latter being his current port of call.
