Wigan Athletic full back/midfielder Lewis Montrose is set to turn his current loan deal with League 2 club Chesterfield into a permanent move

Montrose was due to be released by the Latics in the summer so he will be thrilled to be given the chance to continue professional football at Saltergate

The 20 year old has made 11 appearances for Chesterfield since joining in February but he has been back at the Latics recently receiving treatment on a knee ligament injury but Spirerites boss Lee Richardson is hopeful that Montrose will be available for their last game of the season against Bradford, Richardson told reporters:

‘We’ve got an agreement in principle to sign him [Montrose] so we are hopeful of finalising a deal.

‘We are hopeful Lewis will be training with us next week so he should be available for the final match of the season against Bradford City.

‘He has done well. We think he’s a player with good potential.’


Chesterfield are two points and two places out side the League 2 play-offs with just two games remaining.
