Arsenal youngster Harry Clarke was the final piece of deadline day business as Oldham Athletic completed three new signings.

The 19-year-old defender has signed on loan until January while fellow new boys Brice Ntambwe and Laurence Bilboe have both signed one-year deals with options after successful trials.

Midfield Ntambwe was last with Macclesfield while goalkeeper Bilboe was released by Rotherham in the summer.

They could be in Harry Kewell's squad at Bolton on Saturday but Clarke was signed too late in the day to feature against Wanderers.

Comfortable at centre back or right back, the England youth international is highly-rated by the Gunners but will have to wait until Tuesday night’s meeting with Carlisle to feature for Latics.

Belgian Ntambwe is a ball-winner in the middle of the park who arrives at Latics having played four times for Macclesfield last season, his only start coming in the EFL Trophy.

The 27-year-old spent part of his youth career with Birmingham City before moving to Mons and Lierse in his homeland before coming back to the UK to play for Partick Thistle.

Ntambwe said: “I like to play with a smile on my face and want to help the club do better.

“I like to win the ball back in difficult positions to help and get the team back on the attack. 

“I’ve settled in well already this week and I’m now focused on putting good performances in.”

Bilboe, from Walsall, arrives to provide competition for Doncaster loanee Ian Lawlor.

The 22-year-old spent six years with Rotherham but did not make a senior appearance for the Millers.

His only first-team experience came during a brief loan spell in the National League with Havant & Waterlooville at the end of the 2018-19 season.

He said: “It’s happened quickly the move but I was eager to come here and show what I can do.

“I’ve had a few training sessions with my new teammates and it’s been great.

“I’m fit, ready and really excited to be given the vital experience I want in the Football League. I’ve got quick reactions, I’m comfortable distributing the ball and I’ll always give my all for the team.”
