OLD­HAM Ath­letic have swooped to sign de­fender Theo Vas­sell from Stoke City un­til the end of the sea­son.

The 18-year-old spent the last fort­night train­ing with Old­ham and im­pressed suf­fi­ciently to earn a con­tract with the Lat­ics.

And man­ager David Dunn be­lieves Vas­sell has the po­ten­tial to be a big suc­cess at Bound­ary Park.

He said: “He is re­ally ath­letic, only 18 and def­i­nitely one for the fu­ture.

“He has a lot of very good at­tributes and we spoke to Mark Bowen at Stoke City about him so we have de­cided he is a good young sign­ing for us.

“When I spoke to the board about him, it was one for the fu­ture, but I’m sure if he gets an op­por­tu­nity in the first team he will be able to take it as well.”
