Wigan Athletic confirm Billy Mckay moves to Oldham Athletic on a season-long loan.

  • Billy Mckay moves to Oldham Athletic on loan.
  • Striker moves to Oldham until the end of the season.
  • Northern Ireland international made 9 appearances for Latics.
The club can confirm that striker Billy Mckay has joined Oldham Athletic on a season long loan.

The agreement to take the 27-year-old Northern Ireland international to SportsDirect.com Park has been reached between the clubs this afternoon.

Mckay, who signed from Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January 2015, made nine appearances for the club, and only one start, without scoring.  His last appearance in a Latics shirt came in the defeat at Gillingham in August 2015, where he came on for the final 12 minutes.

He spent the rest of last season on loan at Dundee United, where he scored 12 goals in 29 appearances but was not able to prevent the Tangerines from being relegated from the Scottish Premier League.
