"They are one of the most exciting teams in India and I am proud to play for a club that is so vibrant and ambitious.”

On signing Yarney, head coach Ashley Westwood said: "We are lucky to have him. He is a good age, physically strong and imposing, quick, and an overall athletic footballer.

"We know he has got a very good pedigree having spent time at Everton and playing lots of matches with Newcastle United’s under-23s.

"He has valuable experience of playing in the Football League with Morecambe in League Two, along with two years at Chesterfield in a very competitive National League.”
