READ | Tilt joins Wigan Athletic on loan

15 October 2020

Rotherham United defender Curtis Tilt has joined Wigan Athletic on loan until January, subject to EFL and FA ratification.

Tilt has been working hard in his rehabilitation following an operation in pre-season and joins John Sheridan’s side, who will be looking to bounce back to the second tier at the first opportunity, following relegation last term.

The 29-year-old made one appearance for Paul Warne’s side following his Deadline Day move from Blackpool in January, turning out 24 times in all competitions for the Seasiders prior to his AESSEAL New York Stadium switch.

Rotherham United manager Paul Warne told www.themillers.co.uk that it is important for the central-defender to go out and get minutes under his belt.

He was also full of praise for new Wigan Athletic boss John Sheridan, who he played for during his time with Oldham Athletic, insisting that Tilt is in good hands.

“I think the world of Curtis, he’s got a part to play at our club but he needs to go out and play games and get some match time,” Warne explained.

“He needs the confidence of playing and I think it will really benefit him. He’s going to a great club, I know John Sheridan and he was great with me.

“Wigan are a brilliant club, one in transition but still a good club to play for and I think it’ll be great for him. I think everyone is happy with this deal.”

Everyone at Rotherham United would like to wish Curtis all the best for the period of his loan with the Latics.
