City have signed David Syers following an impressive trial spell with the club.

The former Farsley and Harrogate midfielder has put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season with the option of a further year.

Syers joined up with the club early in the summer and although an ankle injury initially disrupted his trial spell, manager Peter Taylor has been impressed with what he has seen.

The 22-year-old starred in Tuesday's 2-1 Carling Cup win against Nottingham Forest, coming on as a half-time substitute to score the equaliser and make a key contribution in the centre of the park.
