Forest Green Rovers have signed Nicky Cadden from Scottish Championship club Greenock Morton.
The 23-year old former Airdrieonians, Livingston and Ayr United winger has agreed an undisclosed-length deal.
“People’s feedback [about the club] is really positive,” Cadden told BBC Radio Gloucestershire.
“It’s a big move but hopefully it’s a step forward in my career, I can kick on now and hopefully I can help Forest Green get promoted.”
He won the player of the year award at the Championship side last season.
But their hopes of keeping hold of him for the new season have been dashed after he agreed to try English football for the first time.
Richard Hughes, Forest Green’s director of football, said: “Nicky’s an explosive, dynamic player in the final third of the pitch with an ability to score goals and a positive impact on the game.
“He’s got considerable power and pace too, and I know fans will enjoy watching him play.”
Greenock Morton were seventh in the Championship when Scottish football was suspended.
While the winger was offered a new two-year deal with the Ton, he has opted for a cross-border move.
He is Rovers’ second signing of the summer after defender/midfielder Dan Sweeney arrived from Barnet.
Rovers released eight players – Dayle Grubb, Elliott Frear, Farrend Rawson, George Williams, Junior Mondal, Kevin Dawson, Liam Shepherd, Matt Mills – while Nathan McGinley joined Motherwell after turning down a new contract.
Skipper Joseph Mills has been offered a new contract by the club.
