York City manager Martin Gray is hopeful of completing another major signing on Thursday.

Having already brought in former skipper Russell Penn and his recent playing colleague and ex-Gateshead striker Jordan Burrow, Gray is now intent on adding a goalscoring winger to his squad.

“We hope to have another big signing done by tomorrow,” he told BBC Radio York. “[Someone] who will help complement the goals going forward.

Regarding his first couple of summer recruits, Gray explained: “Russ Penn’s experience [is key]. It’s vital you go into the new season with players from a higher level with great experience.

“He’s been a captain in the past and we need more leadership. And he’s now become settled in York with his family, which is really important. He feels he has unfinished business at the club.

“Jordan Burrow, we’ve been monitoring for a long, long time. He’s exactly what we’ve been looking for and we’re very fortunate to get him because he’s a player who could certainly have played higher.

“But he felt this club was right, and he wants to be part of something special and hopefully he can give us the goals that we need to get a promotion.”
