MORECAMBE boss Jim Bentley wants to sign experienced defender Nick Fenton with the 31-year-old joining the Shrimps for pre-season training this week.
Bentley was a youngster at Manchester City with Fenton and has always admired the centre half, who was released by Rotherham at the end of last season.
With more than 400 Football League games under his belt for clubs including Notts County, Doncaster and Grimsby, Bentley believes he will be an excellent addition to the squad.
He said: “I have been good pals with Nick since we were at City as youngsters and I think he is a really good defender.
“His experience will be important to us and he is the sort of character I am looking for.
“He is a talker and a leader on the pitch which is something I am looking for as well. The younger lads will learn a lot from him and it would be great if we can get a deal sorted out.”
