Cheltenham Town have today completed the signing of defender Chris Hussey.

Hussey, 29, has signed a two-year deal, subject to completing a medical.

He becomes the club’s sixth new summer recruit following Johnny Mullins, Ryan Broom, Ben Tozer, Conor Thomas and Alex Addai in becoming a Robin for the 2018/19 campaign.

The London-born defender, who was previously with Sheffield United, adds more experience to the squad with over 230 appearances in the Football League.

The left-back spent last season on loan at Swindon Town, where he scored one goal in 18 games in Sky Bet League Two.

Hussey started his career at Woking before joining AFC Wimbledon. He has also had successful spells at Coventry City, Burton Albion and Bury.

“It’s a new challenge for me,” said Hussey. “The club has shown a lot of ambition with the signings that have been made and it’s exciting to be a part of that.

“I was promoted with Bury and again with Sheffield United a few seasons ago. I’m hoping to make it three with the Robins.

“I know Pete Johnson very well, since I was about 16 or 17 when he used to manage my Academy team, and I’ve spoken to the gaffer a lot about his plans and ambition. He knows what it takes to get promoted and is putting his plans in place.

“I live locally already so it’s a great move for me and I can’t wait for pre-season to start and to get the jersey on for my new club.”
