The 32-year-old said: “My relationship with the manager and the length of contract being offered were big factors in me coming here. After speaking to him everything fell into place and I’m looking forward to working with him again.

“He treats everybody with respect which in football goes a long way, if you’ve a manager who trusts their players they give that back. He has been great throughout my career when I’ve worked with him and hopefully I can do that here as well.

“I was impressed when I came in to see the setup – the pitches look good, there’s a nice gym and the facilities are good. I’m ready to go and looking forward to getting started.”
