The 31-year-old, who scored 59 league goals for the Latics between 2002 and 2005, has been on trial with the Railwaymen since January after being released by Championship strugglers Ipswich.

He has also enjoyed spells at Bristol Rovers, West Brom and Watford in the past.

The news will come as a relief to Alex boss Steve Davis, who had been working to complete a move for the forward in time for the trip to Colchester on Saturday.
