Manchester United youngster joins Latics

Oldham Athletic’s search for a striker appears to be over after they agreed a deal to take Manchester United youngster Zak Dearnley on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year old has spent much of the season playing for the Old Trafford club’s under-23’s this season since the second half of last season.

He has appeared on the team sheet for the senior side once when he featured on the bench for the club against Crystal Palace during the final game of the 2016/2017 season.

His move to Boundary Park will be the first time he’s been out on loan from Manchester United as he looks to impress.
