York City have completed the signing of unattached winger Kenny McEvoy until the end of the season.

McEvoy was available on a bosman free transfer after coming to a mutual agreement with former club Tottenham Hotspur to end his deal at White Hart Lane.

City Manager Jackie McNamara is understood to have spoken with the youngster after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Yeovil Town to finalise a permanent deal following the termination of his contract at Spurs

The 21 year old joined The Minstermen on a short term loan deal in November which was due to expire this month but the winger has impressed at Bootham Crescent despite being handed a number of short cameo roles to display his talent during his time at the club.

The winger, who bares an uncanny resemblance to Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under 17 to Under 21 levels.

McEvoy has previously been loaned out in short spells to Peterborough United, Colchester United and Stevenage prior to his latest move to York City. The majority of his time has been spent playing Under 21 football for Tottenham Hotspur in the Under 21 Premier League.

Having now sealed his move to Bootham Crescent, McEvoy will hope to play a huge part in City’s Football League survival bid.
