Latics Make Deadline Day Signing

Posted: Mon 01 Sep 2014

Oldham Athletic are delighted to announce the permanent signing of Dominic Poleon from Leeds United for an undisclosed fee, subject to Football League clearance.

Poleon has signed a two-year contract with Oldham Athletic.

The 20-year-old made 29 appearances for Leeds' first team in his two years with the club and scored three goals.

The youngster has also spent time on loan with Bury and fellow League One side Sheffield United.

Speaking about the deal, Lee Johnson said: "Poleon is a young talent who is quite unproven but he's got a good reputation in football with the managers he has worked with.

"We believe he needs to be coached and educated but we know he has the raw potential to be a big asset to this club and that's why the chairman has gone the extra mile to sign him."
