2019 Wakefield photo call - Thursday 10 January

Oldham have signed Wakefield’s Luke Hooley and Rochdale’s Declan Kay on loan until the end of the season.

Hooley, 21, has made 21 appearances for the Roughyeds on two previous loan spells, while Kay came through the ranks at Warrington before joining Rochdale.

Hooley said: “I enjoyed my time at Oldham on the last two spells I had over there and I am very happy to go back.

“It’s a good place to be and it will be nice to meet up again with a few familiar faces.

“I’m going to do a job and, hopefully, to help the other lads to get Oldham to where they belong in the Championship.”

The pair follow Featherstone’s Kiedan Hartley to the Vestacare Stadium, where Oldham host promotion rivals Newcastle on Sunday.

Kay added: “I’m looking forward to joining Oldham for the rest of the season.

“It’s a very important period for the club with four key league games left and then, in all probability, a battle to win promotion through the play-offs.
“Hopefully, we can beat Newcastle on Sunday and then move on from there.”
