Crewe Alexandra have made midfielder Chris Atkinson their second signing of the summer, subject to FA clearance.

Atkinson, 22, has agreed a two-year contract after impressing boss Steve Davis during the club's pre-season.

He was released by Huddersfield Town last month after spending most of last season at Tranmere, where he scored three goals in 28 appearances, before a shorter spell with Bradford.

Atkinson follows Rotherham goalkeeper Scott Shearer in moving to Gresty Road.

He has made 76 Football League appearances in his career to date, scoring nine goals.
