"I feel good about it,” said Feeney.

“I was here before on loan for a short spell, so it is good to finally be back permanently and I think it is going to be an exciting season for the club.

"Obviously I'd been here before and I knew about the stature of the club, the stadium, the training facilities and the fans’ support.

"Speaking to the manager and how positive he was, I thought nothing but good things about it, so it is an exciting time and something that I can be a part of.

"The way he spoke to me filled me with a lot of confidence and he outlined what he wants to do, so it should be really good. I'm just glad I can be a part of that and hopefully we can have a successful season."
