Forward Robbie Simpson has made a surprise return to Oldham after being given permission to train with the Latics by parent club Huddersfield.
Simpson will train with Oldham until the transfer window opens in January.
The 26-year old was scheduled to return to Huddersfield after his three-month loan concluded last weekend.
Latics manager Paul Dickov said: "We know Robbie wants to stay. We definitely want him to stay. He loves being here and we love having him."
