Rochdale boss Keith Hill made a hat-trick of deadline day swoops to bolster his Spotland squad.
Dale landed Mansfield Town striker Danny Reet and Grays Athletic winger Glenn Poole on loan deals, while Tom Bates joined the club on a non-contract basis, subject to Football League confirmation.
Reet has been in and out of the Stags' first team since arriving at Gay Meadow just over 12 months ago.
The 20-year-old has netted 12 times in 42 appearances in all competitions since arriving from Sheffield Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Poole came through the ranks at Yeovil Town before dropping out of the Football League and Bates has been offered a short-term deal after training with Dale for the past few weeks.
