Oldham have signed loanee half-back Adam Brook on a one-year permanent deal.

The 25-year-old joined the Roughyeds on loan from Halifax last season, making 11 appearances for the League 1 promotion winners. Brook has also played for Oxford, Keighley and Newcastle.

Oldham coach Matt Diskin said: “He’s a very good half-back with plenty of League 1 experience which he’ll be able to put to good use in the Championship.

“He will give us more all-round strength in the halves and provide quality competition for [Dave] Hewitt, which will be good for both of them.

“He just wants a fair crack, which he will certainly get as will everybody else.

“He’s an exciting addition to the halves and it will be good to have competition there.”
