"It is another new chapter in my life. Nothing is guaranteed, but I have come here to work hard and help the team and bring my experience.

"That is the main aim. I just want to enjoy my football and get back playing again and get my feet back on the pitch.

"There were lots of clubs involved, but, for me personally, I felt this was the right move. I have obviously had a previous relationship with the manager as he was at Man U and I have played under him before, so he knows my qualities and what I can bring to the team."
