ALEX WHITTLE has found himself a new club upon his York City departure.

After departing York by mutual consent on Friday night, Whittle has agreed terms to join Vanarama National League South side Yeovil Town.

Yeovil were relegated from the Vanarama National League last season after ending the season on 40 points and in 22nd position.

Whittle has made the move to the Glovers after ending his second spell with York by mutual consent, after making 34 appearances last season.

The full-back struggled with injuries in his second spell, and has made the decision to drop down a division to play for Yeovil.

In total, Whittle made a combined 93 appearances across two spells with the club, being part of the City side that suffered relegation from the National League in 2017.

Speaking to the club's media team, Whittle said: “I’m happy to be here, I know the gaffer (Mark Cooper), I played under him before at Forest Green Rovers and played against him a couple times last season.

“I had a few clubs interested, the gaffer likes to play a good style of football and he’s signed some good players, so I’m happy to be here.”

In other City news, the LNER Community Stadium will be hosting a pre-season friendly for relegated Sky Bet Championship side Leeds United later this month.

Leeds will host French top division side AS Monaco at York's home ground on Saturday, July 22 (4pm).

The match will be played on the same day as the Minstermen's trip to local side Tadcaster Albion at the SoTrak Stadium (3pm).

It's also expected that Daniel Farke will be in charge of the Whites, with the former Norwich City manager set to be confirmed as appointed in the next 24 hours.
