"He’s very good on the ball and tactically astute. Richie can play off the front or in a deeper midfield role.

"He’s versatile, which is really important to me as we won’t be carrying a large squad this season. It’s vital we have flexibility within the group. He’s another target secured and I’m sure the fans will enjoy watching Richie play.
