York City manager Gary Mills believes new signing Ben Everson can make a real impact after choosing the Minstermen ahead of the opportunity of appearing in the Europa League next season.

"He likes to score goals and has done that wherever he's been" - Gary Mills
Middlesbrough-born Everson has arrived until the end of the current campaign after previously helping Icelandic top-flight outfit Breidablik to qualify for next season's UEFA tournament.

The 25-year-old is a traditional-style centre-forward and really intent on proving himself in his homeland following earlier spells with Icelandic second division club Tindastoll and at West Texas A&M University in the United States.

"He's a good player who has been with us for a month, but we've kept things quiet to see how he did," Mills told The Press. "He's got better and better in that time and done very well, so we have taken him until the end of the season and are hoping to get international clearance in time for Saturday`s home game against Aldershot.

"He likes to score goals and has done that wherever he's been. He works very hard and gets in good areas," he added. "He's hungry and has the desire to do well. He could have carried on playing in Iceland's top division and in the Europa League but he wants to make a name for himself over here."
