He is delighted to have moved to Sincil Bank and has told Lincoln’s website today: “Obviously I’m delighted to be here, I had spoken to the managers two or three times and they attracted me to the football club. I’ve looked from a distance over the last two or three years how things have gone and (the club) have taken a couple of steps up from where they were, and I’m really excited to be here.”

I’m looking forward to showing the fans what I can do on the pitch.”
