He is Simon Grayson's fifth signing of the summer as he looks to build a play-off chasing squad and speaking to the club website, he said: "I'm delighted to get it over the line.

"When there was interest I spoke to the manager and a few of the boys that are playing here, they're a very ambitious team this season and I'm looking forward to being a part of it.

"That's what drew me here, the manager believed in me and wanted me here. That's what you want as a player, it really does kick you on. I just wanted to get the deal sorted.

"I spoke with Dan Batty and he said nothing but great things about the club. He was telling me about the players, the staff and all of the facilities here. The facilities are amazing.

"The manager told me what he was expecting for the season and the way they play. It was nice to have a chat with him and see what his ambitions were. He wants to kick on. It's great that it's finally done and we can get down to work."
