Oldham considering moves for playing duo



League Two side Oldham Athletic are considering moves for free agents Chris McCann and Billy Clarke, journalist Alan Nixon has reported.

Versatile midfielder McCann, who played in the Championship with both Burnley and Wigan Athletic earlier in his career – also making a handful of appearances for the Clarets in the Premier League – has been without a club since leaving MLS side DC United in July.

Clarke meanwhile, is a free agent after leaving Bradford following their relegation to League Two at the end of last season.

The striker had been training with League One club Bolton Wanderers earlier in the summer, although the 31-year-old has now linked up with the Latics

According to the latest reports from Nixon, both McCann and Clarke were involved in a behind closed doors match for Oldham on Tuesday, as the pair look to secure a contract with the club.

It has been a difficult start to the League Two season for Oldham, who have won two and drawn four of their opening 11 games of the league season to sit 20th in the early standings, and recently sacked manager Laurent Banide, replacing him with former Stevenage boss Dino Maamria.

The Verdict

I think this could be a really good bit of business for Oldham.

Given their difficult start to the campaign, it does seem as though the Latics could do with some fresh faces in order to help kick start this season.

Considering Oldham have something of a young squad at the minute, the addition of players who have been around as long as McCann and Clarke could be a welcome boost in that sense as well.

With both having also played further up the division throughout much of their career, you feel both would be able to fit in well for Oldham at League Two level.
