Oldham Athletic look set to strengthen their attacking options with the loan signing of Salford striker Emmanuel Dieseruvwe as reported by Football Insider.
The report claims Salford are willing to let the twenty-four-year-old leave after the recent capture of former Millwall forward Tom Elliott.
Journalist Pete O’Rourke suggests Oldham boss Dino Maamria has moved quickly to offer Dieseruvwe the chance of regular football in the second half of the season.
The Sheffield Wednesday youth product is much travelled having spent time at Hyde, Chesterfield, Fleetwood, Mansfield, Kidderminster, and Boston before arriving at Moor Lane.
He’s scored three goals in twenty-five appearances, including the first EFL goal in the club’s history, but he’s struggled for league starts, and according to the report, he’s agreed to move to Boundary Park for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.
Maamria continues in his efforts to re-shape an Oldham squad currently anchored in the bottom half of League Two.
However, under the current ownership, it looks obvious his options are limited.
Some Oldham fans are calling for the Tunisian’s head, but the problems at the club go much deeper than who is in the technical area.
Dieseruvwe is probably not the prolific striker most fans desire, but his signing is, unfortunately, a sign of the times for the troubled Latics.
