Inman has moved to fellow League One rivals on a season-long loan. The attacking midfielder, who was on the fringes of the Socceroos squad in 2016 only joined Peterborough last year on a three-year deal.

But a badly broken leg in pre-season hampered his campaign and he made just 11 appearances for the club.

Born and raised in Adelaide, Inman started his professional career at Newcastle United and then had a spell at Crewe Alexandria. The 25-year old, who has represented Scotland at junior international level, is hoping for regular game-time at the Dale.

“The Gaffer seems like a winner and I want to play under someone like that," he told Rochdale's club website.

“I asked to come here on a season-long loan because I want to be a part of this team for the whole season, not just six months.

“Over the last three seasons Rochdale have almost made it into the play-offs and that’s what has driven me to this club. Hopefully I can be part of achieving the next step.”
