Former Oldham captain Peter Clarke is training with Fleetwood Town as reported by Sky Sports News.
Sky are reporting they understand the defender is looking to secure a deal with the Cod Army for next season.
The Latics surprisingly released the thirty-seven-year-old at the end of last season after three years at Boundary Park and a couple of days after he picked up the club’s Player of the Season award for 2018/19.
The much-travelled defender made forty-nine outings for Oldham last term, scoring six goals in a disappointing campaign for the Latics, beset with off-field issues under unpopular ownership.
The defender counts Bury, Blackpool, Huddersfield and Southend amongst his previous clubs after starting at Everton on a long and distinguished career.
Clarke has clocked up nearly seven hundred and fifty games but recently told the Oldham Times: ‘I honestly think I have got plenty to offer a new club, plenty left in the tank, as they say.’
Sky might be a bit slow on this one has Clarke already turned out for Fleetwood in a friendly with Wrexham last week.
Fleetwood are looking for defensive cover, and Clarke is a tremendous competitor who has kept himself in good shape.
Many Oldham fans were extremely disappointed to see him leave after a great season in a generally poor side last season.
Even at thirty-seven, he could still do an excellent job for Joey Barton and would be a decent signing in our opinion.
