The Imps have completed the signing of Mide Shodipo who returns to the club on a permanent deal until early January.

The winger is a familiar face for Imps fans having played 20 times while on loan from Queens Park Rangers for the second half of last season.

Shodipo scored twice during his last stint with City, including a memorable strike at Derby County and the finishing blow following a counter-attacking move at Plymouth Argyle.

He has previously played for Oxford United and Sheffield Wednesday, as well as for the Republic of Ireland at U19 and U21 levels.

Shodipo said: “It feels great to be back, I am delighted to be here again and am raring to go. 

“This is a move that works for both parties. I know the players, I know the fans and I know what the club is like so I can settle straight back into things. They made me feel so welcome last time and I can’t wait to play in front of them again”

Jez George, City’s director of football, added: “This is a no-brainer for both parties. Mide knows us, we know him and in our situation, with significant injuries to Ben House and Tyler Walker, he gives us more options at the top end of the pitch and crucially, unlike other options who are free agents, Mide is ready to hit the ground running.

"This arrangement helps us in the short-term and gives Mide the opportunity to earn a longer term contract with us or another club in January.”

Shodipo will wear the No. 30 shirt and is eligible for selection for Saturday’s fixture.
