ELLIOTT DURRELL has said that his decision to sign for York City was a "no-brainer".

The 30-year-old signed for York yesterday following his release from League Two side Macclesfield Town over the summer.

Durrell was part of the National League Team of the Year in the 2017-18 season and could be in line for his York debut against King's Lynn tomorrow.

"I spoke to Watto (Steve Watson) a few times over the summer," he said.

"As soon as I knew that the club were interested in signing me then the decision to sign was a bit of a no-brainer, considering how well the club have been doing recently."

"There were a few other options on the table. But, I think that I can thrive at a club like this.

"The big thing is obviously winning and that's what the team are doing at the minute. It might be hard to get in the team at the minute.

"I'd like to think that I can compliment the team and help keep that winning momentum going. The team are doing great at the minute.

"I've heard great things about the city. The (size of the) club speaks for itself.

"I've played here at Bootham Crescent a few times before and it's a great place to play. The fans clearly love the club.

"Working with Steve before was definitely a big factor in me joining the club. I know exactly how he works and I think he knows what I am capable of.

"When the chance came for me to come and work with him again, it was a no-brainer to sign for the club."
