The Adelaide-born 26-year-old had spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Rochdale from Peterborough United, scoring eight goals in 47 appearances in all competitions.

Inman had a contract with Peterborough but it was terminated by mutual consent, facilitating the permanent Rochdale switch.

“After the last game of the season, I wasn’t sure where my future was going to be," Inman told the club website.

"I went on holiday with a few of the boys and told them I wanted to come back.

“I like the way we play here, and I think the Gaffer gets the best out of me, so I’m really excited to be back.

"I’d also like to thank the fans for their support. It’s a good feeling knowing I’m welcome back at the club.”

The Newcastle United product's star was on the rise upon his move to Peterborough in 2016, also earning a Socceroos call-up before breaking his leg, which affected his opportunities with the Posh.

Inman has been capped at under-age level by Scotland, while he is yet to debut for Australia at senior level.
