RICHIE Wel­lens has re­turned to for­mer club Old­ham Ath­letic on loan af­ter fall­ing out of favour at Don­caster Rovers.

The 35-year-old scored eight goals in 101 ap­pear­ances for Old­ham un­der pre­vi­ous man­ager John Sheri­dan and will re­turn to Bound­ary Park un­til Jan­uary 2.

And Lat­ics’ boss David Dunn is thrilled to have the mid­fielder on board.

“I’ve known Richie for years and the qual­ity he will bring to us will be in­valu­able,” he said.

“First of all he is a leader; he’s got great char­ac­ter and will be a lift to the team and the supporters.”
