Reuben Reid will remain with Oldham next season after agreeing to take a substantial pay cut.

The striker, 22, completed a six-month move to Boundary Park from West Brom in January and scored twice in 11 starts and eight substitute appearances.

Due to financial constraints however, the Latics initially opted not to activate the option of an extension for next season, but Reid has indicated he would be willing to remain at the club on what is described as 'greatly reduced wages'.


Speaking to Oldham's official website, manager Paul Dickov said: "It shows Reuben's commitment that he wants to be here next season.

"Reuben took a pay cut to join us from West Brom and is now taking a further cut to stay. It is great credit that he wants to stay and shows that he buys into what we are trying to achieve here."

Dickov added: "A fit Reuben Reid will score goals, as he showed during a loan spell at Walsall this season. We have only seen little glimpses but I am sure we will see a different player once he has had the benefit of a full pre-season with us."
