Oldham have confirmed the signing of youngster James Barran for the 2021 season from Wigan Warriors.
He joins teammates Ben Holcroft, Max Roberts and Callum Green in signing for the Roughyeds.
He has also spent time out on loan at London Skolars and Leigh Centurions.
Head Coach Matt Diskin said: “James is a talented kid, who needs to be playing at a higher level so as to challenge himself.
“He will undoubtedly add significantly to what is already a strong-looking squad with a nice mix of experience and youth — and he will provide much-needed competition for the half-backs.
“I’m really pleased to sign James and the other young lads who have come through the Wigan system and I’m looking forward to working with them in pre-season and to seeing how they go.”
