Striker will return to Bounday Park after Crewe departure this summer.
Chris Porter will rejoin Oldham Athletic on a one-year contract following his release from Crewe Alexandra at the end of the season. Porter will reportedly become an Oldham player again on July 1st.
Porter, 38, has joined the Latics following their disappointing exit from the EFL and John Sheridan’s side will be aiming for an instant return next season.
Porter scored 31 goals in just 75 appearances for Oldham over two successful seasons at Boundary Park earlier in his career. He left the club in 2007 to join SPL side Motherwell before returning to England to sign for Derby County two years later.
He later played for the likes of Sheffield United, Colchester and Chesterfield and Shrewsbury on loan before joining Crewe in 2017.
Porter scored 54 goals for Crewe over the last five seasons, twice finishing as the club’s leading scorer. He has a fantastic leader on and off the pitch and proved an inspiration with his professionalism to our younger players.
The experienced striker made it clear that he had no intention of retiring from the game as he closes in on the milestone of achieving 200 career goals and everyone at Crewe wishes him well at Oldham.
