The 21-year-old full-back has represented Northern Ireland at senior level and had a spell in League Two with Shrewsbury last season.

He told the club's official website: "I'm looking forward to the move. It will be a fresh and exciting challenge for me.

"I'm very impressed with the set-up at Fleetwood and everyone has been so friendly towards me. The club will be looking to push on from League Two and hopefully I can help them gain back-to-back promotions."

Town manager Micky Mellon added: "I am delighted to bring another international footballer to Highbury. It shows how far the football club has come.

"Conor is a player who has already proved himself and he brings a lot of potential. He is a versatile player and a very good footballer."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
