The talented young striker netted 14 times last term to lead the scoring charts at Boundary Park but has been deemed surplus to requirements by new boss Brian Talbot.
Vernon started The Latics' first two games of the season but has since failed to even make the bench, as Talbot has opted for a variety of other forwards.
Kevin Betsy sealed a switched to the North West club earlier this week from Barnsley and this move further reduces Vernon's chances of regular first team football.
Blackpool have endured a miserable start to the new campaign and boss Colin Hendry was at Boundary Park to watch Vernon for the reserves on Wednesday.
It is expected that Vernon will make his debut for The Seasiders in their trip to Hull at the weekend.
