Oldham have signed West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Alex Palmer on a seven-day emergency loan.

The Latics have been left without a senior goalkeeper after Daniel Iversen was called up by Denmark's Under 21 side as Zeus De La Paz is out with a hamstring injury.

Palmer, 22, is a regular in West Brom's Under-23 side and has been an unused substitute for the first team.

He will feature in Saturday's League Two game against Cambridge United.

Clubs are permitted to bring in a goalkeeper on emergency loan outside of the transfer windows if they have no fit senior keepers available.
