RICH O’Donnell has completed a permanent move to Championship outfit Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper only joined Latics from Walsall last summer.

But after starting the season in the first team, he quickly lost his place to Jussi Jaaskelainen.

O’Donnell was given a rare run-out in the FA Cup first-round clash at Bury at the beginning of December, but made a major gaffe for the opening goal in a 4-0 defeat and hasn’t been seen since.

He was loaned to the Robins a fortnight ago, and has impressed in his four appearances.
