Oldham Athletic have signed Manchester City duo Luca Scapuzzi and Andreas Mancini on emergency loan deals.

Striker Scapuzzi, 20, has made two appearances for City this season, both in the Carling Cup, and has joined on a two-month deal.

The former AC Milan youth player joined the Blues this summer on a three-year contract following a successful trial.

Midfielder Mancini, 19, is the son of manager Roberto and has moved to Boundary Park on a one-month deal.

Latics manager Paul Dickov told the Manchester City websiteexternal-link: "We have got a couple of strikers out with injury and I am really grateful to Roberto Mancini for allowing these deals to go through.

"Luca's confidence is high at the moment after his appearance, assists, and 'goal' [later credited as a Dorus De Vries own goal] in the Carling Cup against Wolves and hopefully he will bring that with him.

"I have seen both Luca and Andrea play this season and they are both decent players.

"We have four games in the next two weeks so they will definitely see some action."
