The striker has now been loaned to Wigan in a bid to bolster the Latics' striking options and also ensure he gains Premier League experience.

Henriquez said on Wigan's official website: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I am really excited after the manager has given this chance for me to prove myself. Now I need to work to try and earn my place in the team."

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez said: "We're really excited about Angelo because he is a very young man with a huge potential; he's a goal-scorer with clever movement inside the box and has had a very successful time with his former club Universidad.

“We hope to have a good partnership in terms of allowing Angelo to develop as a footballer and learn of the demands of the English game, because I feel he can bring us something different in the forward line.

“I'm sure the fans will give him a great welcome on Saturday and it will provide him with the perfect opportunity to begin his experiences on the pitch in English football which is very exciting."
