Oldham Athletic saw a frenzy of activity close to the closure of the transfer window.
Striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, one of their jewels, was sold to Championship club Rotherham United for an undisclosed fee.
The 19-year-old was replaced by Leeds United striker/winger Dominic Poleon and Rotherham midfield man Michael Tidser.
Poleon, (20) who has been on Latics’ radar for some time, has signed a two-year contract. He has also had loan spells at Bury and Sheffield United.
Tidser, meanwhile, is a 24-year-old midfield man who has joined on loan from Rotherham until January.
He kicked off his career at Celtic and also played for Greenock Morton before joining Rotherham. He was loaned by the Merry Millers to Scottish Premier League club Ross County for the second half of last season.
Latics’ manager Lee Johnson is pleased with his business, though sorry to see Clarke-Harris leave.
He added it is a good deal for the club: “Jonson was a project that we brought in for nothing from Peterborough and we have a good fee for him.
“We have done well with Jonson because we’ve looked after him and turned him into a real valuable asset.”
