Rachid Bouaouzan feels that a loan spell away from Wigan would be the 'best solution' for him.
The winger joined the Latics from Sparta Rotterdam last summer but failed to make a first-team appearance during his first year at the club.
As a result, the Dutchman now feels that time spent away from the JJB Stadium would be the best option for all concerned, as the valuable experience he would be able to pick up would allow him to return to Wigan better equipped for life in England.
Bouaouzan has also seen Steve Bruce sign his compatriot Daniel de Ridder over the summer, further restricting his opportunities to break into the manager's plans any time soon.
"For the club and for me it is better that I play games," he told Algemeen Dagblad.
"I have now been at Wigan for a season and it has been a fun learning period. I can no longer see myself sitting in the second team.
"Last season I never played so perhaps a loan to another club is the best solution."
