“Devine, 15, has starred for England’s Under-16 side on the international stage and was part of Latics’ record-breaking U18s this season as Peter Murphy’s side reached the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup for the first time in the club’s history.

“We wish Alfie well in his future career.”]

Devine is the second rising star to leave Wigan after Jensen Weir was sold to Brighton and Hove Albion last week.

Wigan are being forced to sell off their assets after entering administration earlier this month.

They suffered relegation from the Championship after being hit with a 12-point deduction by the EFL. The club’s appeal against the punishment will be heard on Friday.
