Leam Richardson has completed his first signing of deadline day, with goalkeeper Paul Rachubka rejoining Stanley on loan from Leeds United.

The 31-year-old will now stay at the Store First Stadium until the end of the season.

The former Blackpool and Huddersfield man made six appearances for the Reds before Christmas after joining the club on an emergency loan deal.

"I'm just glad it's all sorted now and I can concentrate on the football," he said. "It's been a long couple of weeks and the weather hasn't helped and I just want to get back playing and back into the routine of being involved in first team football.

"All the lads have welcomed me back and it's been great. You know what you're dealing with and there's no settling in to do.”
