The 23-year-old has signed a two-year deal at Valley Parade after being released by Scunthorpe United last month.

He enjoyed loan spells at Harrogate Town and North Ferriby United during his time with the Irons and was a product of the Scunthorpe academy.

Sutton made his debut for Scunthorpe in March 2016 and made over 50 appearances for the Lincolnshire club.

Sutton said: “I am delighted to be here. I am looking forward to hopefully being a part of a successful team, which I feel we will be.

“This is a massive club which should not be in League Two.

“I will give 110 per cent while here and cannot wait to hopefully be playing soon, in front of all our supporters.”

The move will reunite Sutton with Stuart McCall and Kenny Black, after the pair were in charge at Scunthorpe between 2018 and 2019.

McCall added: “I worked with Levi at Scunthorpe and was really surprised when I saw he had been released. I know they had made him an offer, prior to Covid-19.

“He is a whole-hearted and totally committed lad with a real desire to be a footballer, which we want.

“There is a little edge to him and I know he will give everything he has got, as well as being able to play in a number of positions.”
