STEVE Robinson has continued to overhaul the OLDHAM ATHLETIC squad by making his 10th summer signing on Monday.

The new Latics manager was named as John Sheridan’s successor earlier this month and made a triple signing on his first day as boss.

The former Northern Ireland international then made a spate of additions last week and has followed that up by bringing in Fulham centre-half Cameron Burgess on loan.

The left-sided defender, who helped Cheltenham win the Vanarama National League title last season, has agreed to link up with the Latics until January 5.

The 20-year-old is available for Tuesday night’s friendly at home to Preston and the Latics’ EFL Cup tie at home to Wigan on Tuesday, August 9.

Oldham also signed Wigan striker Billy Mckay on loan last week, with the 27-year-old joining the League One club on a season-long deal. Mckay spent most of last season on loan at Dundee United, scoring 13 goals in 36 games for the Scottish Premiership side.

The Latics made five permanent signings last week too, bringing in midfielders Ryan Flynn (Sheffield United), Marc Klok (Cherno More) and Luke Woodland (Bradford Park Avenue), as well as keeper Chris Kettings (Crystal Palace) and left-back Jamie Reckord (Ross County).

All six players Robinson brought in last week featured in Saturday’s 2-0 friendly defeat by Huddersfield, as well as his earlier signings Connor Ripley, Josh Law and Lee Erwin. Oldham’s next pre-season game is at home to Preston on Tuesday before they visit AFC Fylde on Saturday.
