According to reliable journalist, Alan Nixon, Oldham Athletic are still considering bringing another goalkeeper to the club this summer, with Bailey Peacock-Farrell under consideration.
Peacock-Farrell spent time on trial at Oldham earlier this summer, but the 20-year-old returned to Leeds United after John Sheridan passed up the opportunity to sign him on-loan.
Less than 48-hours ago, Oldham were without a senior goalkeeper, but since then the Latics have moved to secure the service of Ben Wilson, with the Cardiff City man arriving at Boundary Park on-loan until Janaury.
Despite that addition, reports suggest that Oldham will still look to sign another goalkeeper between now and the end of the summer, with Sunderland’s Max Stryjek also under consideration.
Nixon believes that Oldham will make a choice between Stryjek and Peacock-Farrell in the coming days, with neither player set to get a first-team opportunity with their parent-club.
Simon Grayson moved to solve Sunderland’s goalkeeping issues over the last ten days, signing Jason Steele and Robin Ruiter, with the duo featuring in the matchday squad for the Sky Bet Championship opener against Derby County on Friday night.
Felix Wiedwald and Rob Green are also ahead of Peacock-Farrell at Elland Road, but the 20-year-old is clearly in Leeds’ long-term plan, after he was handed a three-year deal earlier this summer.
Oldham are desperate for another goalkeeper this summer, with John Sheridan’s squad already looking stretched before the season has even begun.
Both Stryjek and Peacock-Farrell would be good additions, with both goalkeepers having plenty of potential and needing just some regular game time to help their developments.
It remains to be seen who the Latics opt to sign this summer to compete with Ben Wilson, but the goalkeeping department is not the only area Sheridan needs to strengthen.
