Oldham Athletic have signed Newcastle United academy graduate Dan Langley until the end of the season.

The young goalkeeper has penned a deal at Boundary Park after training with the club in the summer following his departure from Gateshead.

The 22-year-old came through the Newcastle United academy was a regular in their youth teams up until the age of 20.

He then moved to Gateshead, making 12 appearances last season, before joining Blyth Spartans in the summer.

Goalkeeping coach Steve Collis believes Langley complements the department well, alongside Magnus Norman and Mat Hudson.

"I think it's important to have three quality 'keepers on our books, who will push each other and that's what Dan will help us do," he said.

"He's still very young for a goalkeeper at 22, and he's had experience at this level before which is fantastic."

After completing his move, Langley added: "I was down here for a few weeks in the summer and saw what a good group there is with Magnus and Mat.

"I'm really delighted to be here and see if I can make my own mark, and kick on from there."
