BLACKPOOL have signed England U20 star Callum McManaman on loan.

The 20-year-old joins the Seasiders on a three-month youth loan from Premier League outfit Wigan Athletic.

He started his career at Everton and moved to the DW Stadium in 2007.

He agreed a new two-year contract with the club in April and has made nine appearances in a Wigan shirt so far.

The striker is a distant relative of former Liverpool and England star Steve McManaman.

He is expected to go straight into the squad for the game against Doncaster Rovers tomorrow evening.
