Championship: Wigan and Millwall confirm loan signings ahead of deadline day

Millwall have bolstered their squad with an experienced Bundesliga talent, while Wigan have announced the signing of defender Martin Kelly on loan until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old moves to the DW Stadium from West Brom, having made only five league appearances for the Baggies this season. 

Kelly becomes new manager Shaun Maloney's first signing as the Latics boss aims to guide the team out of the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone.

Steven Caulker, Miguel Azeez and Christ Tiehi have already bolstered Wigan's options and Kelly's arrival has added further defensive reinforcements to a side who currently have the worst defensive record in the league.

Millwall, on the other hand, have announced the signing of Oliver Burke on loan from Werder Bremen until the end of the season.

The attacker returns to the club just one year after a previous loan spell, where he scored twice in 14 appearances.

Burke, 25, has represented Scotland 13 times, scoring one goal, and is no stranger to English football, having played for Nottingham Forest, Bradford, West Brom and Sheffield United.
