Radio Sheffield reports that Oldham have been given permission to discuss personal terms with Owls striker Leon Clarke.

His recent loan period at Southend ended more with a whimper than a bang when manager Steve Tilson openly questioned Clarke’s commitment to the Shripmers. Clarke’s stats during his time at Roots Hall are impressive, however: a goal every two games a clear indication that he can definitely do a job at that level.

Brian Laws said yesterday there were other clubs in the hunt for the ex-Wolves man’s signature and so it has proved: John Sheridan and the Oldham board can now make an offer to a player they know all about. Clarke spent a month there last season, scoring three in five.

Leeds are also rumoured to be interested.. however that seems to be pure speculation at this stage. Watch this space.
