Oldham Athletic midfielder Chris McCann has signed a new contract until the end of the season with a clause to extend for a further year.

The former Burnley, Wigan and Atlanta United man joined the club in October on a short-term deal and has made 13 appearances, becoming a firm favourite at Boundary Park.

The 32-year-old has now penned improved terms to keep him in a Latics shirt.

"Chris has been a huge boost for us since he came in, bringing plenty of qualities to the team,” head coach Dino Maamria said.

"I'm pleased we've been able to get him on a longer contract so he can make a bigger impact and is a key pillar to the squad for this campaign as well as next season.

"He's a top professional with a lot still to offer and I'm sure the supporters will be eager to see him back out there on the pitch representing the club."
