Striker Darius Osei wants to make an immediate impact after signing from Stalybridge Celtic last week.
The 21-year-old was signed by manager Steve Robinson with the future in mind but the striker wants to take his opportunity straight away should it come along.
He said: "I want to make an immediate impact, get to know the boys and see what happens from there. I want to get in the first team and kick start my season.
“Every striker wants to score goals and do their best in every season they play so hopefully it will happen for me this year.”
The striker came through the youth ranks at local side Stalybridge and enjoyed a loan spell with Barnsley last season.
When asked about his key attributes on the pitch, Osei responded: “When I’m on the pitch, you’ll have to see and find out.”
We certainly do look forward to it, Darius! Welcome to Oldham Athletic.
Osei will wear the number 18 shirt during his stay with the club this season.
