Oldham bring in duo late on

Oldham have gone some way to softening the blow of losing Jonson Clarke-Harris on transfer deadline day by bringing in Dominic Poleon and Michael Tidser.

The Latics sold Clarke-Harris to Championship Rotherham for an undisclosed fee which shattered the Millers' 250,000 record and Scottish midfielder Tidser moves the other way on loan until January.

Poloen joins from Leeds on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Boss Lee Johnson said: "Poleon is a young talent who is quite unproven but he's got a good reputation in football with the managers he has worked with.

"We believe he needs to be coached and educated but we know he has the raw potential to be a big asset to this club and that's why the chairman has gone the extra mile to sign him.

"We are looking forward to working with Tidser. This is a deal that suited both ourselves and Rotherham.

"Hopefully he can prove to us what he is about with the football we are trying to play."
