Stoke City's Jamaican international left-winger Demar Phillips has joined Oldham on trial.
The 25-year-old is set to play for the Latics in Saturday's friendly at Grimsby and manager John Sheridan says that may lead to a season-long loan.
"Hopefully he will do well and give me food for thought. There is a chance of first-team football for him here," he told the club website.
Phillips has made just two substitute appearances for Stoke.
