Two new faces at Boundary Park
Date published: 31 January 2019
Pete Wild is the caretaker manager at Boundary Park
Oldham Athletic have made a double deadline signing with strikers Zak Dearnley and Oladapo Afolayan joining on loan for the rest of the season.
Dearnley joins from Manchester United and he has been playing in the U23 squad for the Premier League club since the second half of last season.
Dearnley has featured once on the bench for his parent club which came in the final game of the 2016/17 season against Crystal Palace.
This will be his first loan move away from the club as he looks to impress in first team football.
Afolayan joins Latics from West Ham United after playing in their U23 side.
Afolayan was previously at Solihull Moors before his move to West Ham where he scored 15 goals in 44 appearances.
Meanwhile Courtney Duffus has moved to fellow Sky Bet League Two club Yeovil Town.
Duffus joined Latics in July 2017 from Everton and made just nine appearances for the club.
During his time at Boundary Park he spent time on loan at Waterford FC.
Duffus joins Yeovil for an undisclosed fee and Latics have a 40% sell on clause.
