City sign Hackett-Fairchild

The Imps have completed the signing of exciting winger Reeco Hackett, who has agreed a three-year contract with City.

The London-born player joins from Portsmouth, with the Imps paying an undisclosed fee for the player.

The left-sided forward came through the Academy at Dagenham & Redbridge and has since enjoyed first-team football at Charlton Athletic and Portsmouth in Sky Bet League One.

Hackett also represents St Lucia on the international stage and will be involved in the Concacaf Gold Cup later this month in the USA.

He said: "I'm very happy for the deal to get over the line and I am looking forward to getting started.

"When I first spoke to the head coach it came across as a family club and somewhere I felt wanted and appreciated.

"I am an attacking player who is direct and left-footed. I like to score goals and would say I am quite a creative player. I aim to help the team and be successful to try and create history.”

Imps head coach Mark Kennedy added: "We have worked on this signing for six months, so we are delighted to bring Reeco to the club.

"He is a really talented, creative and exciting wide player who will bring quality at the top end of the pitch, adding athleticism and a goal threat to the team.

"We are signing him at a really good time in his career, and I know our fans will enjoy watching him play."
