Milligan said: “Signing ‘Pondy’ has made a real statement for where this squad wants to get to.

“I’ve known him for nearly half my life and I trust him so much as a player and a person.

“I’ve brought in one of the best centre-halves about and he will be a real leader in this squad. We’re a very young squad, so Pondy’s experience will be priceless.

“With loads of games coming up and winter around the corner, he adds to an already brilliant backline and I can’t wait to work with him.”
