Date published: 18 January 2019

Oldham Athletic have announced a second new signing in a matter of hours, as they bring in a reinforcement in defence.

Sonhy Sefil has joined on a one-and-a-half year deal, hours after striker Urko Vera put pen to paper until the end of the season.

The centre-back has previously played with AS Lyon-Duchere in the Championnat National in France.

He has also played for Asteras Tripoli in the Greek Superleague.

Originally from Martinique, the 24-year-old started his career at French club SC Sedan Ardennes before moving to League Two side AJ Auxerre, where he made 23 appearances.

Sefil has been handed the number 15 shirt at Latics.

He is available for Saturday’s match with Macclesfield.
