The striker signed a contract at Victoria Park earlier today and he said he wants to make a big impact at his new club ”I think with the squad that the Manager has assembled we can give it a good push this season – I haven’t come over here to be involved in a relegation fight.

”I’ve spoken to Chris about it and he says he wants to give it a go so I’ve promised him goals and I’ve promised him I’ll give it my all whenever he wants me to play.”
