Danny Andrew has hailed the ambition of Fleetwood Town after becoming the club’s first signing of the summer.
Left-back Andrew signed for the club from Sky Bet League One rivals Doncaster Rovers on a three-year-deal on Tuesday, and in the process became Joey Barton’s first addition ahead of the 2019/20 season.
This will be the 28-year-old’s second spell with the Cod Army, after signing for the club in 2014, before leaving two years later.
But shortly after putting pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at Highbury until 2022, Andrew stated as to why he chose the Fylde Coast.
“The manager was a massive part for me,” said Andrew.
“He’s played at the top level and has been there and done it. I enjoyed talking with him and it seems that he’s got those positive messages across to the squad about what he wants to achieve.
“I’m delighted to get the move over the line and done with. I’ve been here before so it’s great to be back and I can’t wait to get going.
“There’s quite a few lads that I know already, so I’m hoping to get settled in really quickly and hit the ground running.”
A proven League One player, Andrew joins Town on the back of a successful season at Doncaster, where he featured in all 46 league matches as Rovers finished in the playoffs.
“I was really happy with how last season went,” added Andrew.
“The season before I had a long-term knee injury, so to play the amount of games I did, and help us get into the playoffs, was very good for me and the team.
“Hopefully the supporters will see a better version of me than when I was here last time. I’m coming here on the back of a solid season in League One, and I hope that they will be impressed with what they see from me.”
