The centre-back made eight appearances for Scotland U21s under Scott Gemmill and will look to push for form that helped him play senior football at Liverpool. Wanderers Manager Ian Evatt said: “George is a player with a fantastic pedigree who came through the ranks at Liverpool before moving to Feyenoord two years ago.

“That he was willing to move away and play abroad in a different league at such a young age says a lot about his character. He came back for the second-half of last season and had a very successful loan spell at Wigan Athletic. He’s a very talented player for the future and we are delighted to have signed him.”
