The Imps have completed the signing of England U21 international goalkeeper Josh Griffiths on loan from West Bromwich Albion.
The 19-year-old, who was part of the Three Lions squad for the U21 European Championship earlier this summer, will stay with the Imps until the end of the season.
He said: “I spoke to the gaffer and goalkeeper coach Steve Croudsen over the summer and really liked what I heard about the ambition of the club - it seemed a good fit.
“And I spoke to some of the lads who were here last season, specifically Alex Palmer, and they all said good things about the club so it was an easy decision. Alex didn’t have a bad word to say, he said the lads were all great and had a real driving force and philosophy.”
Griffiths already has one EFL promotion under his belt, having played 50 times for Cheltenham Town as they won promotion from Sky Bet League Two last year.
He added: “My first aim for this season is to play as many games as possible. I played quite a few last year and want to follow on from that, as a club there has to be an aim to win as many games as possible.
“Going on loan last year was the best thing I could have done as a younger player: we played Man City in the FA Cup and to top it off with promotion and a medal was brilliant.”
