Jordan Rossiter revealed the ambition of Fleetwood Town was the main reason for his decision to join from Rangers.
The 23-year-old joined from the Glasgow giants on Monday morning before jumping on a plane to link-up with Joey Barton's men in Portugal
The former Liverpool academy graduate spent 13-years at the Reds before moving to Scottish Premiership side Rangers in 2016. He finished off last season with League Two Champions Bury and is now looking to keep momentum going for the 2019/20 campaign.
“I am made up to have signed for Fleetwood Town,” said Rossiter.
“I’m just looking forward to getting started as it has been a long few days at the club.
“I know the manager Joey Barton from our time at Rangers, and I also know Clint [Hill], and when they got in touch about me coming down to Fleetwood, it was the place I wanted to come and play my football.
“Jason Holt spoke highly of the club and with us both being at Rangers, he told me all these good things and for me that was enough. I just can’t wait to get started!”
The Liverpudlian noted in his iFollow interview that the manager's ambitions matched his own, and with where the club want to go, he wanted to be part of that project.
He added: “The club here is very ambitious and when you come here and look at the facilities and who has come in this transfer window, they are top of the range.”
The box-to-back midfielder will meet his new teammates on Monday afternoon in Portugal, and he knows the importance of bonding with the lads before a long old season.
“I am looking forward to meeting the lads over there. I’m sure it will allow us all to get to know each other, but we all know it’s going to be a tough week – but one we will all benefit from come the first game of the season.”
