Byfield agrees Latics stay

Striker Darren Byfield has agreed to extend his loan stay at Oldham Athletic after impressing boss John Sheridan during his first month at Boundary Park. The 32-year-old has made four appearances for the Latics since arriving at the club from Rotherham United last month. Byfield, who will remain with Sheridan's side until January 10, said: "My main aim was always to stay here at Boundary Park for another month and now I want to weigh in with a few goals. "I've not been on the losing side yet, so hopefully that's a good omen and I can help the lads to get into an even better position. "Playing up front with Lee Hughes has been an absolute joy and I feel like I'm getting sharper and sharper the more matches I play. "I missed out on pre-season and was just finding my feet when the toe injury put me back. "I feel good again now after training and playing again. I didn't want the loan spell to end and I'm delighted to re-sign."
