Bristol Rovers have completed a deal with Wigan Athletic which sees young goalkeeper, Lee Nicholls, move south for three months, the club have confirmed.
The goalkeeper, who is seen as back up to both Richard O’Donnell and Jussi Jaaskelainen, has jumped at the chance of first-team football which was offered to him by Rovers manager, Darrell Clarke.
The move sees the recently promoted League Two side send current loanee Aaron Chapman back to his club Cheltenham Town, with Clarke claiming that Lee Nicholls was closer to the the type of goalkeeper that he wanted, but stressed that Chapman had done nothing wrong.
The 6ft 3 goalkeeper has been chosen by England in the past, at both under-19 and under-20 level, where he was second choice to Jack Butland at the Under-20 World Cup in 2013.
Rovers currently sit in tenth position in Sky Bet League Two, after a mixed start to their 2015/16 campaign, which has seen them win three times, and lose three times out of their first six matches.
