Oldham Athletic’s squad for the new 2024/25 season is taking shape, with a number of new faces arriving at the club this week.

Josh Kay, Manny Monthe and Harry Charsley have all completed moves to Boundary Park, with Rochdale winger Jesurun Uchegbulam set to join them today (Wednesday), on the back of Reagan Ogle signing on a free transfer from Scunthorpe United last month.

Kay signed a two-year deal on Monday, having come to the end of his contract at AFC Fylde.

Latics then completed a double swoop on the second day of pre-season by adding former Tranmere defender Manny Monthe and attacking midfielder Harry Charsley to their ranks, both penning two-year deals.

Monthe, who won back-to-back promotions with Tranmere under Mellon, says he is ready for the challenge of the National League having spent the last four years in the Football League with Mansfield, Port Vale and Newport County, where he has made 48 appearances over the last 18 months.

Charsley, who was part of the Port Vale side that won promotion via the League Two play-offs in 2022, is a coup for Latics boss Mellon.

“Harry is a really clever player and we’ve worked really hard to get him,” said the Scot.

“He had opportunities to stay in the EFL but when we spoke to him and told him what we want to do at Oldham, he happily agreed to join us.

“We want him to be part of what we achieve here. We were clear in where we needed to strengthen and signing Harry is a huge positive for us.”

After completing his move to OL1 Charsley said: “It is a really exciting time to be joining Oldham and I can’t wait for the season to start.

“I had other offers from clubs from higher divisions during the summer but the ambitions here were clear from my conversations with Micky Mellon and I’m delighted to be part of it.

“I’ve had two days of training with the squad, the standard and intensity has been excellent and I’m very excited about the season ahead.”

Charsley's first club was Everton, joining the Toffees when he was just nine years old. He went on to serve the club as a professional for six years.

Centre half Monthe arrives on a free transfer after a season at Northampton, during which he made 34 appearances.

The 29-year-old has previously worked with Latics manager Micky Mellon at Tranmere Rovers.

“I’m very pleased to have signed for Oldham and can’t wait for the season to get started,” said the Cameroonian.

“We’ve had a really strong start to pre-season, the players look sharp and there’s a great atmosphere in the squad.

“I’ve worked with the manager and a number of players before and it’s a move that really excites me.

“This is a huge club and there’s so much potential to do well, now it’s our responsibility to perform on the pitch.”

Uchegbulam, 23, was set to be added to the squad this week, ahead of the squad's five-day training camp at St Andrew's, which they will return from on the eve of their first pre-season friendly at home to Stockport County on July 13 (kick-off 3pm).
