Made Premier League Debut For Cardiff City, Aged 18
Right back Tom James joined Latics on loan from Hibernian this summer, initially until 17 January 2021.
A former Wales youth international, James progressed through Cardiff City’s academy to make his Premier League debut for the Bluebirds against Chelsea, just a month after his 18th birthday.
Just under three years later, James moved to then League Two side Yeovil Town, where he spent two-and-a-half seasons in an impressive stay that earned a move to Hibernian in the summer of 2019.
Injuries and the early curtailment of the 2019-20 season due to COVID-19 meant James has played just 12 times for Hibs before he made his loan move to Latics.
