Rochdale striker Iyseden Christie has rejoined Kidderminster Harriers on a long-term loan deal.
Christie, 29, moved to Spotland in January after an 18-month stay at the Aggborough Stadium but has scored just two goals for the League Two side.
Yates told the club website: "He is a proven goalscorer at this level. It hasn't worked for him at Dale and we┐re more than happy to have him back."
Meanwhile, Harriers have released midfielder Duane Lee.
