League One Oldham Athletic have completed the signing of former Blackburn midfielder David Dunn.

He has Premier League class and his experience will be vital to the younger players in our dressing room.

This signing will make our midfield one of the strongest in League One so I'm looking forward to working with David.

As it stands, however, he will leave next summer as he has just one year left on his contract.

Arsenal have confirmed that goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny will join Roma on loan for the upcoming season.

Szczesny told asroma.it: "I've come here to win matches and trophies with Roma and I think the team are strong enough to do that. I think there's great potential here.

"I already know the faces and the names of my new team-mates and I'm hoping to get settled here quickly."
