Lee Nicholls: Has shone during a loan spell at Northampton

The 20-year-old goalkeeper is held in high regard at the DW Stadium but other, more experienced, options are currently favoured by boss Roberto Martinez.

That has allowed Nicholls to go in search of game time elsewhere, and he has excelled during a stint in League Two.

The youngster has kept 15 clean sheets during his time with the Cobblers, helping to fire them into automatic promotion contention.

Nicholls will be looking to end the season on a high by helping Northampton into League One, and Boothroyd hopes the England U20 international will then return to the club for the 2013/14 campaign.

He said: "Wigan are happy with Lee's development and I have to say I'm absolutely delighted with how he's done.

"He is getting better and better and we'd love to have him for another year."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
