He began his career as a trainee at Tottenham and his previous clubs also include Colchester, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Watford.

The Irishman, who scored five goals in 70 league games for Bradford, becomes Oldham's 11th signing of the summer.

He could make his debut in Saturday's League One game against local rivals Bury.
