The midfielder has signed until 2010 and McKinlay told fulhamfc.com: "He's a high energy player who gets about the pitch very well - either off the right or through the middle.
"He makes really good runs in behind the strikers and is always in and around the box. By and large, in every game, he's always getting three or four attempts on goal. He had a couple of efforts against Bristol Rovers, which is what he's about.
"He sees a nice pass and is efficient with his work. His main asset is the goal threat he carries from the middle of the pitch, he gets up and supports the front two well and he's got an eye for a goal. In and around the box, you would back him to hit that target more often than not."
