Derby County defender Stephen Warnock has joined Sky Bet League 1 side Wigan Athletic on an emergency loan deal.

The 34-year-old left-back has linked up with the Latics until the end of the 2015/16 season, although Derby do have the option to recall the player after the first 28 days of the deal.

Warnock has made 30 appearances in a Derby shirt since joining from Leeds United in January 2015, of which 22 have been in the current campaign.

Wigan, managed by Gary Caldwell, are second in League 1 and currently sit four points behind leaders Burton Albion.
