The 21-year-old, who started his youth career at Wigan, was released by the Trotters at the end of last season having failed to make a first-team appearance, although he has gained experience of League Two football during loan stints at Southend and Accrington.

Boss Jim Bentley told the club's official website: "Jack has a good pedigree and has loads of potential.

"He's been at Wigan and Bolton and played in the league on loan at Southend and Accrington and I think he will have a lot to offer.

"He is still only young and we won't put too much pressure on him but I am really pleased that he has joined us. He has played for England (at Under-19 level) and comes highly recommended and I am sure he will make progress with us over the next two years."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
