SIDO Jombati has today became Wanderers' third signing of the summer after arriving from Cheltenham Town.

The full back - who used to train with Cristiano Ronaldo at Sporting CP in their native Portugal - has signed a two year contract.

The 26-year-old was a fans' favourite during his three years with the Robins, picking up the supporters' player of the season award in his first campaign after arriving from non-league Bath City.

He was released at the end of the season, having made 134 appearances for the Gloucestershire outfit - one of which came at Wembley in a League Two play-off final.

Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth said: "I’ve seen Sido play many times and he’s always caught my eye. He’s tall, very quick, athletic and good on the ball. He's also an outstanding professional and I’m sure he’ll be a really good addition to the squad.

"He’s also got great experience of this level from his time at Cheltenham and he will fit in well here."

Jombati, who has also played for Weymouth and Basingstoke Town in the English non-league football set-up, is predominantly an attacking right back but can also fill in on the left.
