York City boss Chris Brass has signed former Burnley team-mate Steve Davis.

Davis has signed a two-year deal with the Minstermen following his departure from Blackpool.

Brass tried to sign the 35-year-old centre-back last summer and is delighted to have lured Davis to Bootham Crescent at the second attempt.

"He turned down offers to stay in the League and will be a great signing for us. He wants to help take York City forward," said Brass.

"He has a wealth of experience, which will help the youngsters and he will fill the void in the dressing-room left when myself and Lee (Nogan) moved over (to management).

"I have played with him and I have a great deal of respect for him as a player.

"He has tasted success and he knows what it takes to go the full course of a season and to get promotion."

Davis, who started over 350 games for Burnley either side of a spell with Luton Town, is Brass's first signing since York's relegation from Division Three.

"He was one of our main targets and having managed to secure this one, fingers crossed we can fire ahead with one or two more," Brass added.
