League One side Oldham Athletic have signed central defender Gavin Gunning on a short-term deal after a successful trial period at Boundary Park.

The 24-year-old was released by Birmingham City last season after making just one appearance.

Gunning began his career at Blackburn Rovers and joined Dundee United in 2011 where he captained the side.

Gunning told the club website: "I've enjoyed it since I've been in so I'm looking forward to getting going."

The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 will be in the squad for Oldham's opening game of the season against Walsall.
