LEAGUE I Oldham Athletic have re-signed former Huddersfield Town loan player Lee Croft.
The 27-year-old wingman – who plays for Town’s Championship rivals Derby County – has returned to Boundary Park on a season-long loan.
Croft, who played three matches on loan for then Town manager Lee Clark in the 2010-11 campaign, had 12 matches on loan with Oldham back in 2004-05 when he was a Manchester City player.
The exodus of players from the newco Rangers club continued with highly-rated youngster John Fleck signing for Coventry although, unlike previous departures, the two sides agreed a financial deal for the transfer.
The Scotland Under 21 international colleague of Town’s Jordan Rhodes was one of a number of Ibrox players who had objected to the transfer of their contracts from Rangers to Charles Green’s newco.
PFA Scotland believe the wantaway players are free agents and have asked the football authorities to release their registration from Rangers.
Green has vowed to seek compensation from the likes of Everton, Norwich and Stoke, who signed Steven Naismith, Steven Whittaker and Jamie Ness, respectively.
But the newco chief executive revealed npower Championship side Coventry had agreed a deal for Fleck and was happy with the outcome.
