Oldham manager Lee Johnson has brought in Mike Petrasso from QPR

Petrasso has linked up with the Latics ahead of their match against Hoops team-mate Michael Harriman's Gillingham on Saturday.

The Canada Under-20 international had been set to join Oldham's Sky Bet League One rivals Notts County - managed by recently-departed Rangers midfielder Shaun Derry - but the move was scrapped.

Petrasso featured 19 times in the QPR Under-18 title success last season and was rewarded with a two-year professional contract.

The 18-year-old has made nine appearances for Marc Bircham's Under-21 side this campaign, scoring six goals.

His loan at Boundary Park will run until December 21.
