The 20-year-old has impressed in the Latics' bid for promotion to the Championship this term.

But Sheridan believes his protege still has plenty to learn, and is not shy in telling him so.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "I had Deane in the youth team and the reserves, and I love him as a kid - he's a lovely lad. He knows that I believe in him, and that's all I can do.

"But I will pester him and moan at him, because that's the way I am.

I want him to be a player, and that's the reason I do keep on at him. He definitely can be a player, but he has to have belief in himself."
