"He’s an exceptional midfielder, as you can imagine, me being a midfielder, I’m excited.

"I’ve been watching him for a while just thinking ‘I don’t think we’ll be able to get him’ because of his qualities, because of his experience, but thankfully we’ve managed to get him through the door.

"He’s going to bring so much to us and he’s a winner.”
