Leeds United midfielder Alfie McCalmont has joined League Two side Oldham Athletic on a season-long loan.

The Northern Ireland international could make his debut for the Latics in tomorrow’s home match against Crawley Town under some ex-Australia player that manages them now.

McCalmont has impressed in Leeds u23 side and made his first team debut as a substitute against Salford City in the League Cup. He then got his first start in the next round against Stoke City.

McCalmont also impressed for the Northern Ireland u21 side to the degree that he was given his senior debut against Luxembourg in September 2019.

Personally I expected McCalmont to get a League One loan, but so long as he gets regular football this could be good for him - it is certainly better than the loans that were on the table in Spain’s third tier.
