“We’re signing a midfielder on loan today from a Championship club. Once we knew Alex was leaving, we knew who our target was and he’s now here.

“He’s someone we’ve been after for a while and has only just become available. He played a lot of games for them during lockdown, he’s a great character, a good athlete, and is someone who can really handle a football. I’m glad we can finally get that one over the line.”
