Oldham Athletic have added to their attacking armoury by signing Andrew Dallas on loan to the end of the season from Barnsley.

The 24-year-old has already proved his National League pedigree, most notably last season when he hit over 20 goals for Solihull and Chesterfield combined, leading to his summer move to Oakwell.

Dallas went back to his native Scotland when he was loaned to Kilmarnock in September but was limited to substitute appearances, and was recalled last week.

And Oldham boss Micky Mellon has thanked the board for their backing in making a move for the striker.

"I’m sure everyone knows that Andrew is certainly a signing who shows we’re heading in the right direction,” he said.

"He’s a top player who has scored goals at this level in the past and like I say it’s a big step forward for us to start seeing the team that I certainly want to see here.

“We’re really pleased with Andrew, I’m absolutely delighted the football club has backed us in allowing us to get this done.

"We're another step closer to us seeing a side that can win football games consistently.”

Dallas began his career with Rangers, before spending two seasons with Cambridge United in League Two.

After a successful loan spell with Weymouth, the forward joined Solihull, enjoying two seasons at Damson Park and reaching the play-off final with the Moors in 2022.

His 32 goals for Solihull encouraged Chesterfield to take him in on loan at the end of last season, as he helped the Spireites to the National League play-off final.

The transfer is subject to international clearance.
