Since then, he's been playing in America, helping Atlanta United win the MLS Cup in 2018, before spending this season with Wayne Rooney at DC United.

“Chris has been training with us for a few weeks now and has impressed in every department," said Oldham head coach Dino Maamria of his first signing since taking over.
