Oldham are set to sign former Huddersfield captain Andy Holdsworth after he turned down a move to Bradford, according to Bantams boss Stuart McCall.

Former Huddersfield midfielder Holdsworth, who has also turned down Millwall this summer after being released from the Galpharm Stadium, was offered a permanent deal by McCall after impressing during a trial spell that included two friendly matches.

McCall told Bradford's official website: "It's frustrating, but you can't blame the lad. I got a call to say he was going to Oldham and wants to carry on playing League One football. He did well when he came here, enjoyed it all and we offered him a deal.

He added: "But once Oldham were sniffing we knew it would be tough and he has decided to go there."

Meanwhile, Huddersfield expect striker Keigan Parker to complete his permanent move to Oldham on Thursday.
