"I am really glad to get it done and dusted," he told MFC TV.
"There was a fair bit of interest from the manager (Stuart McCall) early on, so I am pleased it has now been finalised.
"From the minute I came in the door for the first time, there was a real family atmosphere and that is what drew me to the club.
"I always had an idea then that I was going to come here, even though it was a hard decision given other clubs were interested.
"I just can't wait to get started. I will give it my best shot and we will see how it goes.
"We have a really good squad and the manager will probably add some more new faces too."
