Oldham coach Matt Diskin believes new signing Daniel Igbinedion will provide additional power and go-forward as the Roughyeds aim to consolidate their Championship status in 2020.
Igbinedion joins Oldham following a recent spell with Dewsbury, and after having previously played for Feathertsone and Sheffield since being released by Castleford as an academy player.
Diskin said: “He’s a good addition to the squad. He’s a big, strong lad, very athletic and a player who can give us additional power and go-forward. He’s also got a good offload.
“He’s got lots of Championship experience and I see him as a middle-channel man, who will complement the talents of our other forwards.”
Igbinedion joins fellow former Rams Cameron Leeming and Jode Sheriffe in making the switch across the Pennines.
He said: “I’ll be 25 next month and I’ve got a fair bit of Championship experience so I’m looking forward to a fresh start at Oldham.”
