Head coach Grant McCann said: “Tom will be a great addition for us. He’s got a different dynamic to what we have got and brings something different to our forward line.

“He comes here with a good pedigree. He was probably one of the best centre forwards in League One last season in terms of the goals he was scoring in a team that wasn’t around the top end of the table, so we are really pleased to bring him here.”

Eaves, Player of the Year at Gillingham in 2018-19, joins QPR goalkeeper Matt Ingram in signing for City this summer.
