Oldham boss Ronnie Moore is to continue to scour the market for a new striker.Oldham boss Ronnie Moore is to continue to scour the market for a new striker despite having secured the services of Chris Porter.
The Bury youngster put pen-to-paper at Boundary Park on Wednesday but Moore's desire for another forward has still not wilted.
Oldham have been on the lookout for an experienced forward all summer and Jamie Cureton, Darren Byfield and Chris Greenacre are the latest names in the frame.
Moore has confirmed that he is looking to speak to each of the player's agents, whilst reiterating Coventry's Andy Morrell remains a target.
''I've not quite ended my search yet,'' confirmed Moore.
''We've always had Chris in mind and that allowed us to let Scott Vernon go to Blackpool.
''So we're still looking for an experienced striker and we're hoping to speak again with Andy Morrell's agent about a possible deal there.
''I think he wants to speak to two or three Championship clubs first but he would give us something different.''
Despite Moore's interest in Morrell, skysports.com can confirm that the forward will in all likelihood ink a new deal at Coventry.
Morrell's agent, Lee Payne, has confirmed that having been offered a deal at his current paymasters, a move away from the Championship outfit looks unlikely.
''I think he'll stay at Coventry now and sign a deal there,'' Payne told skysports.com.
Meanwhile, Oldham goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall has inked a two-year deal at Grimsby having not been offered fresh terms at Boundary Park.
