Rochdale manager Steve Parkin has landed teenage Walsall striker Taiwo Atieno on a three-month loan deal.
"Physically he's a big lad and will be able to cope well with the division. He should give us extra ammunition," Parkin told his club's website.
Atieno, 19, has made three appearances for Walsall this season since signing a professional contract in the summer.
Meanwhile, Kevin Townson will return to Dale next week after the final game of a month's loan at Scarborough.
