YORK City have completed the statement signing of defender Tyler Cordner.

After triggering the defender's six-figure release clause, Cordner has joined York from fellow Vanarama National League side Aldershot Town.

The 24-year-old picked up nine goals in 50 appearances in his time with the Shots, and joined Olly Dyson in the England C squad last season for the friendly against Wales, captaining the Three Lions.

The defender had a hugely successful campaign with Aldershot, being the club's top scorer, earning 14 man-of-the-match awards, winning the player of the month accolade three times, as well as being voted as the supporters and player's player of the season.

Cordner originally came through the ranks at Premier League side AFC Bournemouth, also having a spell with Weymouth before establishing himself as a leading centre-back in the National League.

It's thought that Cordner also had interest from higher division sides in the Summer.

Cordner becomes the ninth new face to join the Minstermen, and the second centre-back alongside Kevin Joshua.

It comes after chairman Matt Uggla promised supporters marquee signings in the next week.

Speaking on his move to York, Cordner said: "I’m delighted. It was quite an easy process.
"Thank you to Aldershot for having me last year.

"I’m here now, a York City player, and I can’t wait to get going.”
