Ronnie Moore believes he is close to completing a move for Delroy Facey.Oldham boss Ronnie Moore believes he is close to completing a move for Hull striker Delroy Facey.
The pacey hit man is currently on-loan at fellow League One outfit Huddersfield Town, but is wanted by Oldham to spearhead their bid to beat the drop.
Moore has spoken of his frustration in recent days, having enquired about 50 players but to no avail.
The new Latics chief has lamented both players' attitudes and London based clubs who are reluctant to send their young players north.
However, after talks with Facey's agent, Moore is hopeful that the player will be available to make his debut at the weekend against Luton Town.
Whilst Facey could well be on his way to Boundary Park, Tranmere Rovers' Gary Jones will not be making a similar switch.
The versatile midfielder had all but inked a deal at Oldham but having broken a toe, the move is off.
Another target for Moore is Blackburn Rovers youngster Gary Harkins, with the midfielder having previously enjoyed loan spells at both Huddersfield Town and Bury.
