Bury manager Lee Clark told the Bury's club website: "Chris is a player that I identified very early in the off-season as a player that I would want to recruit.

"The chairman and I flew up to his home area in Aberdeen to have talks with the player about the possibility of him coming to Bury.

"He obviously had many offers to consider so we are delighted he has chosen us."


Meanwhile, former Coventry City midfielder Jim O'Brien has signed a two year deal with Ross County.
