New striker Vadaine Oliver is relishing the prospect of returning to his home county after joining York City.

"It just felt for me this was the right place to be" - Vadaine Oliver
The Sheffield-born marksman has signed a two-year deal for the Minstermen and becomes their first summer arrival following his release from Crewe Alexandra earlier this month.

Last season he scored seven times in 32 games on loan for Mansfield Town, which also prompted interest in the former Sheffield Wednesday trainee and Lincoln City centre-forward from both Carlisle United and Exeter City.

"The big thing here was manager Russ Wilcox. He brought me through at Sheffield Wednesday when assistant to Brian Laws," Oliver told BBC Radio York. "He's huge on where he wants to go with the club and how he thought I could play here and be a big part of the team. That's what attracted me.

"There were quite a few other clubs interested," he continued. "But the feel-factor of York compared to the other deals I got offered, it just felt for me this was the right place to be. I feel that this is where I can flourish as a player."
