“I’m still only young and have lots to learn and I feel this is a place I can do that under a good manager and lots of good coaches.

“I’m looking forward to meeting the fans too – it seems like a fantastic fan-base. I can’t wait to get going.”

He becomes Chesterfield’s fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Kane Drummond, Paddy Madden and Tim Akinola.
