​Oldham take a chance on former Stoke youth player

League One side Oldham Athletic have signed defender Theo Vassell on a deal until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old centre-back came through the youth system at Stoke City and impressed during a trial with the Latics.

"He is really athletic, only 18 and definitely one for the future," boss David Dunn told the club website.

"He has a lot of very good attributes and we spoke to Mark Bowen at Stoke City about him so we have decided he is a good young signing for us."
