Oldham manager Lee Johnson has signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract at Boundary Park.

The Football League's youngest manager will now remain with Latics until the summer of 2018.

Chairman Simon Corney recently expressed a desire to reward Johnson, 32, with a new contract and, despite Oldham winning just one of their last eight games, he has been true to his word.

Speaking at his Thursday morning press conference prior to putting pen to paper on his extension, Johnson said: "I am loving working here, it's been an unbelievable topsy-turvy year but I am loving it."
