Dujon Sterling has today joined Wigan Athletic on loan for the 2019/20 season.

The defender has come all the way through our Academy ranks and made his senior debut in September 2017, replacing Davide Zappacosta in a League Cup tie against Nottingham Forest.

He spent last season in League One with Coventry City, where he made 40 appearances for the Sky Blues and helped the newly-promoted side to a respectable league finish of eighth.

Sterling, 19, will now link up with Paul Cook’s Latics, following in the footsteps of Reece James, who spent the season at the DW Stadium last term. Wigan finished 18th in the Championship, 12 points clear of the bottom three.
