The signing is the second signing of the summer and the first arrival on a permanent basis, with the club having only been able to bring in one loan signing due to financial constraints.

Veljko Paunovic said: “Junior is a player with proven pedigree at the highest level, having competed in the Premier League with three different clubs. 

“An experienced international, Junior will play an important role in helping our young players integrate within the first team squad and improve as professional players.
