The 18-year-old has apparently been attracting attention from a number of bigger clubs and a report from earlier this week suggested that "talks will place" between the Blues and the Latics.
The deal could involve a new arrangement between the two clubs whereby Oldham would have an option to loan players from the Blues' Academy and Under-21s side.
Renshaw signs a three-year deal and joins a Finch Farm Academy that recently released Polish stopper Jindrich Stanek after two and a half years with the club.

Does anyone know if RK has brought his Goalkeeping coach along for the ride? I never liked the look of the previous neanderthal (no offense like).

I think Stanek is from the Czech Republic, not Poland.
