The 21-year-old central defender departed for Sky Bet League One rivals Brentford but surprisingly agreed terms on a 28-day loan to rejoin Latics when the window reopens on Friday.
Oldham signed non-league striker Rhys Turner from Stockport last month but boss Lee Johnson is not ready to risk him yet because the player recently suffered a hamstring tear.
Johnson also revealed unnamed members of his squad are carrying minor knocks while midfielder David Worrall could drop out again after only recently returning from a long-term groin problem.
