Philliskirk has however not surprisingly opted to join Chelsea .
Oldham chief executive Alan Hardy told the club's official website.
'We're delighted for Danny - he is joining a massive club with fantastic resources which will help him develop his game,'
'Talking with Tony, I know he has been impressed with the facilities. Danny has four years of security and time is now on his side to develop into an excellent player.
'Also, we may have an opportunity of taking him on loan at some stage.'
The full terms of the contract have naturally not been disclosed, but it is understood Oldham are expected to benefit from a number of potential lucrative deals.
Chelsea have agreed for example to send some of the club's top youngsters out on loan to Boundary Park.
Well done Danny, Tony must be a proud man!
