JP told Latics World, "I know a bit about Oldham as I watched them in the play-offs as well as playing against them twice last season. They're a good side who deserved to be in the top six. I played at Wembley last season which was a great experience, it is a magnificent stadium. It was terrible to lose on the day, but hopefully I can now have another good season with Oldham."
"I try to work hard for the team and take care of the ball. I like to make sure I don't lose possession and get the ball back as soon as I can. I'm more of a defensive midfielder, but am happy doing the opposite if that's what I'm told to do. I know John Sheridan likes to play a passing game, and that suits me as I'm not a player who likes long balls. I spoke to the manager this morning and I love his philosophy. I think we will get on very well. I'm really looking forward to the new season. This is a new challenge, a new club and that excites me. I can't wait for the Swansea game."
