Charlie MacDonald: Oldham Athletic sign ex-Orient striker

Oldham have signed former MK Dons and Brentford striker Charlie MacDonald, who was allowed to leave Leyton Orient at the end of last season.

The 32-year-old has agreed a one-year deal with the League One club, with the option of a second in Oldham's favour.

His arrival will strengthen boss Lee Johnson's attacking options after Matt Smith departed to Leeds last month.

MacDonald began last season with the Dons and joined Orient on a short-term contract in January.

He scored three times in 20 appearances for Russell Slade's side, including twice in a victory over eventual champions Bournemouth in March, but was not offered a longer stay by the O's.
