Rochdale have signed former Everton youngster Scott Spencer on a one-month deal.
The 20-year-old striker arrives at Spotland to help plug the gap created by Adam Le Fondre's move to Rotherham.
Spencer joined Everton from Oldham three years ago in a deal worth over £500,000, but failed to make an impact at Goodison Park and was released in the summer.
Last season he had spells on loan with Yeovil and Macclesfield.
