League Two side Oldham Athletic have made their move in the transfer market to sign former Manchester United midfielder Chris Eagles.
Reported by Sky Sports’ transfer centre, the Latics have moved to seal a deal for Eagles, who has been without a club since spending time with Ross County during the 2017/18 season.
Eagles will come into the club with a vast amount of experience in his locker following spells with the likes of Man United, Burnley and Bolton.
The midfielder is still only 33 and will be keen to prove he can still do it in the professional ranks in England having seen his stock fall thanks to a host of injuries and spells with clubs where things simply haven’t gone his way.
Eagles broke into the game as a young player at Old Trafford and was given his chance by legendary United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, before struggling to make a massive impact on first-team affairs with the Premier League giants.
He enjoyed loan spells with the likes of Watford and Sheffield Wednesday while at United, but impressed massively during his spell with Burnley as he became a regular starter and goalscorer as he helped the club into the Premier League back in 2008.
This could be quite the capture for a club like Oldham if they can get the best out of Eagles, who has always been a player who possesses a vast amount of ability.
He is capable of being a match winner down in League Two, and if he can get fit, get his head right, and perform to the level we all know he is capable of, then Oldham could be getting quite the player on their hands.
