City have completed the permanent signing of goalkeeper Jordan Wright from Nottingham Forest.

The 22-year-old has been at Forest for eight years, and has had loan spells at Alfreton, Alloa and Hereford. He has signed an 18-month contract with the Imps.

He said: "I'm pleased to get the deal done, I know I'm coming in as a number two but I'm looking forward to working with everyone and kicking on from there.

"I've been up and around the first-team at Forest and had some loans, I need to be challenging to be in the first-team on a regular basis now.

"I've had a good chat with the goalkeeper coach Steve Croudson, and I am sure I can develop a lot under him."

Imps director of football Jez George added: "This has been something that we have been working on for a while so that we have a permanent number two goalkeeper to provide cover for the first team and allow us the option of Sam Long getting out on loan to play regular senior football for his continued development. Jordan fits the bill perfectly for what we wanted and we are delighted that he is joining us."
