Simpson: Made Latics switch

Oldham have completed the permanent signing of forward Robbie Simpson from League One counterparts Huddersfield.

Simpson has made 22 appearances for Latics this term, scoring six times during two spells on loan from the Galpharm Stadium and has now signed with Paul Dickov's side until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has become a fans favourite at Boundary Park, netting a hat-trick in the League One win over Monday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy northern area final opponents Chesterfield and opening the scoring with a stunning strike in the FA Cup defeat against Liverpool at Anfield.
