Oldham Athletic land Joel Byrom in double swoop

14 March 2014

Oldham Athletic have added to their midfield options by signing Preston North End's Joel Byrom on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 27-year-old has found first-team opportunities to be limited at Deepdale this campaign.

Latics boss Lee Johnson told the club's official website: "Joel's come in to bolster us and adds a bit of experience at this level which is something we need."

Also speaking to, Byrom added: "It's a good move for me. I know a few of the players here so it's a good team to come into.

"I'll bring a bit of balance to the team with my left foot. I like to keep the ball, create chances and hopefully I can nick a goal or two."

Meanwhile, the Latics have also signed Norwich defender Adel Gafaiti on loan until 21st April.
