League Two Forest Green Rovers have agreed a deal to sign left-back Alex Whittle from York City.

The former Liverpool academy player, 24, will join on a free transfer until the end of the season when the window opens on Monday.

"The philosophy of the style of play was a big selling factor for me. They always try to get the ball down and try and play," Whittle said.

"It will be a little bit of a step up but I am hoping I can adjust well."
