The restaurant chain used to sponsor the awarding of prizes to fans on match days but announced on Twitter that they will end their association with the League One club.

They did not explicitly mention the controversy around signing the former Sheffield United striker, but it is likely that it played a major part in their decision.

The chicken specialists are not the first company to cut their ties with club, with local firm Verlin Rainwater Solutions recently ending their deal with the Latics.

Ultimately Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley could have final say on whether the transfer goes ahead. If his business Sports Direct were to threaten to withdraw their £1 million sponsorship, then Oldham would surely have to stop any move for the 26-year-old.
