“I just knew, when my loan finished here last season, that I wanted to come back. I got straight on the phone to my agent and told him this was the club I wanted to be at.

“It was a no-brainer for me and I am delighted to have got it sorted. Playing for this club, the minimum is to give 100% and I just cannot wait to get going here again.

“I feel, from a footballing perspective, I have a lot more developing to do and playing here under the gaffer and Kenny (Black) will bring that out of me.”
