Oldham Athletic have further bolstered their squad with the signing of goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall from Notts County.

Latics boss Brian Talbot has been on the lookout all season for cover for regular number one Les Pogliacomi and has now finally landed his man.

The giant custodian has inked a contract until the end of the present campaign, as he bids to earn a long term deal at Boundary Park.

Mildenhall, 26-years-old, has reached a settled at County to join Oldham - taking a pay cut in the bargain.

Talbot has spoken of his delight at landing an experienced goalkeeper, who should put Pogliacomi under pressure for a first team place.

''I wanted experienced cover for Les, someone who would push him for his place,'' Talbot told the club's official website.

''Steve has now sorted out his contractual situation at Meadow Lane and I am pleased to say he will be available for both the FA Cup and LDV Trophy.''
