36-year old former Blackburn and Derby man Todd, who hasn't played a league game in this country for almost two years, has returned to England after featuring for Perth Glory in Australia and agreed a deal with the Latics until the end of the season having received international clearance from the Australian Football Association. Meanwhile, White, 19, is back with Oldham on loan from Leeds for the rest of the current campaign, White having ended a previous temporary spell at Boundary Park at the start of this month after suffering an ankle ligament injury.
While today the Latics have brought in a further two new players in Cedric Evina and Reuben Reid. 19-year old Evina has just finished a truncated loan spell at Boundary Park and the left-sided former Arsenal youth team skipper has now signed a permanent deal with Oldham to the end of the season after being released by the Gunners. Reid, 22, has also signed for the Latics on a similar basis, after being let go by Premier League outfit West Brom on a free transfer, Reid having moved to the Baggies for a reputed £500,000 from Rotherham in July 2009.
In the other direction three players have gone out of the exit door permanently, and two have lengthened their spells away from Oldham. Firstly, 27-year old ex-Huddersfield midfielder Jon Worthington left for a loan spell at Bradford City on Tuesday only to then have his Latics contract ripped up in order for him to sign permanently for the Bantams yesterday, while secondly versatile defender-cum-midfielder Andy Holdsworth, who is 27 on Sunday, has had the remainder of his current two-year contract, which was due to end this summer, ended by mutual consent to enable him to sign for League Two side Morecambe.
Thirdly Hungarian teenage centre-half Ferenc Fodor has gone back to his home country after having the remainder of his one-year contract that he signed in the summer following a loan spell from MTK Budapest settled up. Fourthly 22-year old striker Deane Smalley has had his loan extended with League Two outfit Chesterfield until the end of the season, while finally winger Rob Purdie has done the same thing in the same division at Herford United.
In actual team news from Boundary Park striker Warren Feeney will be missing tomorrow after he limped off injured with an ankle problem in the second half of Oldham's 2-1 home win over Brentford a fortnight ago. While youth team midfielder Andy Crompton, who has been on the bench for the Latics just once this season is also absent through injury, and 19-year old striker Ryan Brooke will not be available due to an illness.
