City have completed the permanent signing of striker, Ben House, from Eastleigh.
After coming through the academy at Reading, the 22-year-old attacker has been capped by Scotland at under-21 level and has attracted the interest of several EFL clubs through his performances over 18 months for Eastleigh.
House said: “It’s been a long time coming, but I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to get going with the rest of the season.
“I know the opportunity to develop here is top class, the club put their trust in young players and it’s a great opportunity for me to come here and progress with my career.
“I want to play as many games, score as many goals, and get as many wins as I can to help the team as much as possible and to impress the fans. I came to a game recently and the atmosphere was incredible and I’m really looking forward to getting out there.”
Lincoln City manager, Michael Appleton, said: “Ben is a player we have been monitoring for some time and so I am delighted we’ve managed to sort a long-term deal to bring him to the club.
“We’ve clearly strengthened a lot in the forward areas already this window, but what I like about Ben is he’s young, he still has a lot to learn, and he will be our player beyond this season. Ben is not yet the finished article but he has excellent attributes which we can develop and he can play in more than one position, so he will add great depth and more options to the squad for the rest of this season.”
