Harkins was 'itching' to agree loan move to Oldham

Gary Harkins wasted little time mulling over a loan move to Oldham Athletic following a series of "disagreements" at parent club St Mirren.

The forward has joined Oldham until the end of the season, with the Sky Bet League 1 club managed by his former Kilmarnock team-mate, Lee Johnson.

The move comes after Harkins proved unable to consolidate a starting place with St Mirren. His work ethic has since emerged as a reason for his lack of playing time.

"There were one or two little disagreements," said Harkins. "I'm delighted to get the chance at Oldham - as soon as I got the call I was itching to get here. I look forward to the challenge."
