Latics swoop for Roque

21 March 2007 01:39
Oldham Athletic have bolstered their promotion bid by landing Liverpool youngster Miki Roque on loan. The 18-year-old Spaniard will remain with the Latics until the end of the season. Roque has made one first-team appearance for the Premiership side as a second-half substitute during a Champions League clash with Galatasaray in Turkey in December. Meanwhile, Latics chief John Sheridan is locked in negotiations with an unnamed "higher division" club to land a second loan signing ahead of Thursday's deadline.
