Crusaders defender Josh Robinson has secured a move to York City.

Robinson has agreed a two-year deal with the Football League Two side.

The 22-year-old will undergo a medical in the next week before finalising the move.

It is an exciting chance for the Crues defender who had been on the radar of a number of clubs across the water.

Crusaders confirmed the deal on their official website.

“Crusaders have accepted a financial package from York City FC in respect of Josh Robinson in lieu of the FIFA international transfer compensation scheme,” the club said.

“Josh signed for Crusaders in August 2012 and during his four seasons played 124 games, scoring nine goals, and of course played his part in our back to back Gibson Cup wins.”

Meanwhile, Glentoran have completed the signing of Portadown defender Ross Redman.

Redman joins the Glens following 12 years at Shamrock Park.

“I am delighted to secure Ross. He is a very talented left back who will bring additional quality, experience and leadership to our first team squad,” Glentoran boss Alan Kernaghan said.

Redman added: “I had a couple of great chats with Alan and I’m very excited by his plans for the team and my role in it.

“The aim is obviously to get the Glens back to seriously challenging for the league title and the other trophies and I’m confident we can do that”.

Meanwhile, Conor McMenamin has left Glentoran and is expected to sign for Warrenpoint Town.
