“I’m absolutely delighted that Scott has joined us,” he told the club’s official website.

“We’ve beaten off competition from many top clubs in the Championship to secure his signature, based on our identity and style of play.

“This signing shows the ambition we have and that we want the best players we can get. He’s someone we’ve waited for but he’s worth the wait.

“He’s the perfect type of player I want in my team because he completely fits our philosophy. What I love about Scott is his ability to finish actions – to take shots, convert chances and he’s deadly from set-plays. His personality will completely fit into the group.

“He’s fantastic technically, can take the ball between lines, has got amazing movement, makes intelligent runs, presses well and likes to link and combine with other players.

“Scott can play in multiple positions and most importantly, he has end product – an area we identified as one we needed to improve on for this season.”

The attacking midfielder was hit with injury problems though and started just eight games, making 18 appearances in total and scoring three times.
