Forest Green Rovers have completed the signing of striker Connor Wickham, signing an initial deal until January.

The 29-year-old spent last season with League One Play-Off semi-finalists MK Dons - and adds more attacking reinforcement to the Rovers ranks.

Wickham started his career with Ipswich Town before plying his trade in the Premier League with the likes of Sunderland and Crystal Palace - and had spells with Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds United and Preston North End.

A former England youth international, the forward featured across all levels from Under 16s right up until Under 21 level.

Paragraph Break

Upon signing for the club, Wickham said: "I had a chat with the manager last week and I had a good think about it and this is definitely an exciting project that I want to be part of.

"This team are coming into this season on the back of getting promoted and the club are going in the right direction.

"The style of play at Forest Green suits me and is a part to my game that some people may not be aware of. I want to get back to my best here."

Ian Burchnall, Head Coach, added: "Connor's name was brought to us a couple of weeks ago so we met with him and thought it seemed a really good fit."

"We know his top level is extremely high and we want to build him up so he can be a great player for us."

"He was hungry to join us and be a part of what we're working on here at Forest Green - he's a great fit."
