Murray has also experienced playing for Latics having made 95 appearances for the club.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Murray said: “I’m delighted to be back here at Boundary Park, it's a great club and I know what people expect around here."

"I can't wait to get started and meet the young players we have, it's important we try and develop these lads to be the best that they can be."
