Powell was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for Manchester United in 2012 and tipped as a future England international.

Despite scoring on his debut he struggled to break through and was affected by Ferguson's retirement the following summer.

He is in good form for Wigan this season and has scored 11 goals in 25 games.
