Wigan Athletic look likely to be losing on loan midfield man Tom Cleverley sooner than expected, the Manchester United youngster looks set for a recall to Old Trafford following a serious injury to former Latics star Antonio Valencia that will see him out for the season.
Cleverley has also suffered from injury this campaign and he has made just one substitute appearance for the Latics and found himself sidelined with a knee ligament strain picked-up in training, but with two appearances for England Under 21`s over the past few days he is now well on the road to recovery and could feature in Saturdays trip to Newcastle.
Having proved his fitness in the Under 21 games and being highly rated by Latics boss Roberto Martinez it wouldn`t be at all surprising to see Cleverley feature this weekend, Martinez though warns that with there being a call back clause in the loan deal it could be the last we see of the youngster in a Latics shirt.
Speaking to the Wigan Evening Post Martinez said: "Obviously the injury to Antonio Valencia has increased the chance of Tom going back to United.
"There has been no contact between the two sides, but it is only natural what is occurring because Tom is such a good player.
"We all know how highly United rate Tom - that`s why we had to do everything we could to get him here in the first place.
"I have always said that we have to enjoy him for every day he is here - just as we want Tom to enjoy being here at Wigan Athletic.
"And that`s all that matters, for however long that period might be.
"It`s only a matter of time before Tom is playing at the very top level with United. It`s not if, but when."
"Tom has played very well for the England Under-21s and has suffered no after-effects to the injury he suffered last month"
"We have all seen him in training and you can see by the way he behaves around the place that he is going to be a top, top footballer. And he will be.
"He will be in contention for the Newcastle game but, from then on, whatever will be will be."
