Oldham Athletic have taken young Southampton goalkeeper Michael Poke on loan.

Latics boss Ronnie Moore has drafted in the 19-year-old following Les Pogliacomi's move to League One rivals Blackpool on Friday.

The Australian's departure has prompted the former Rotherham United manager to sign teenage custodian Poke as cover for number one Chris Day.

Poke has yet to make a first team appearance for The Saints but he will hope for a chance to show his abilities with The Latics.

The keeper is expected to be signed up in time to be part of the Oldham squad that faces Chesterfield at Boundary Park on Saturday.
