Oldham Athletic sign Jonathan Benteke until end of season

League One side Oldham Athletic sign Jonathan Benteke, the younger brother of Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke, until the end of the season.

Oldham Athletic have signed former Crystal Palace striker Jonathan Benteke on a deal until the end of the season.

The younger brother of Christian Benteke made one league appearance at Palace before being released at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Benteke has been on trial with the Latics squad over the past week and has impressed during that time, including scoring a goal in a Lancashire Senior Cup match against AFC Fylde.

The 22-year-old's most recent spell was at Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia, where he spent the first part of the season.

The Belgian could feature against Blackburn Rovers in League One on Saturday should international clearance be received on time.
