I am not leaving Oldham - Windass

Dean Windass
Windass has played 10 games for Oldham, including 40 minutes in goal

On-loan Oldham Athletic striker Dean Windass has denied claiming he will not play for the club again.

He was quoted on his own blog saying he was unhappy because he was only a last-minute substitute against Leeds.

But the Hull forward, 39, told BBC Radio Manchester: "I never said I was walking out on Oldham. I never said I was never going to come back.

"It was a storm in a tea cup. If I play then I play, if I don't obviously I'm not going to be happy about it."

He added: "I've come here to play football. I could have stayed at Hull and sat on the bench in the Premier League."

Windass, who is due to stay at Boundary Park for the rest of the season, says he is now looking forward to helping the Latics fight for promotion from League One.

"It was in the papers this morning that I've got to retire now." he said. "What a load of rubbish that is. I've come to Oldham to try and get in the play-offs."
