“We would like to place on record our thanks to all the players who have not been retained for their contribution whilst at Boundary Park and we wish them well in their future careers.”

McCann had been with Oldham since October 2019, when he signed on a free transfer. The former Burnley man joined for nothing after his release from Atlanta United and in his time at Boundary Park, played in 19 games across all competitions. In the process, he laid on one assist, scoring no goals.

As a vastly experienced midfielder, it will be interesting to see who looks to snap McCann up this summer. He has amassed over 450 appearances during his career and will now be on the lookout for a new club.
