Oldham Athletic have completed a loan deal for striker Billy McKay on a season-long loan deal from Wigan, while they are aiming to complete a deal for free agent Aaron Hughes.

The moves come following the appointment of former Northern Ireland assistant manager Stephen Robinson as the Latics new boss, and he has moved to add the two international players to his ranks.

McKay netted 13 goals in 35 league appearances for Dundee United last season while 36-year-old Hughes has been without a club since a brief spell in Australia with Melbourne City.

Having spent the bulk of his career in the top flight with Newcastle, Aston Villa and Fulham, Hughes could be reluctant to drop down to League One and it is believed he has other offers to carry on playing.
