“The manage we have has been at the top of the game and everyone at the club is driven in the same direction to achieve our goal of promotion, which we are more than capable of.
“Playing here in the past, it has always been loud, with the supporters imposing themselves on the game, and that is something I want to be a part of.”
Furthermore, the player is keen to kick on himself and prove to the supporters why he wants to be at the club as he said: “Entertainment is a big part of my game. I want to get on the ball and make things happen, and am ready to kick on and do what I need to do.”
