The Bulls have announced the loan signing of Rob Purdie, while two squad players are shown the door.
Current Oldham man Purdie has returned to Edgar Street on a three month loan after featuring for the reserves against Bristol Rovers earlier in the week. Since leaving the Bulls in 2007 after five years and 184 games he spent two years with Darlington before joining the Latics last summer. He has never played a senior game after being injured within weeks of joining the club, and was transfer listed by new boss Paul Dickov. Rob Purdie and Jamie Pitman greeting each other at the Lawn before a pre-season friendly in 2006. Now they are on the same side again.
Leaving the Bulls are fringe pair Amadou Rabihou and Samba Kanoute. Cameroonian striker Rabihou started only once after arriving two months ago, while French defender Kanoute made only one sub appearance in the loss to Oxford.
Rabihou was due to be with the club until the end of the year, while Kanoute was due to remain for the season. Both have left 'by mutual consent'.
