After a successful trial period at the club, the 20-year-old midfielder signed a one-year deal with Lee Johnson's men and has an option to extend for a further 12 months.

"I have reached the age where I need to play games - and hopefully it will happen here," the former Brighton man told the club's official website.

"The biggest thing is to have the opportunity to play games which the gaffer has said he will give me.

"There are a lot of young players here, and it is the perfect club for me."
