YORK CITY have signed ex-Wolves defender George Swan on a one-year deal.

The 20-year-old, son of former Leeds United, Hull City and York defender Peter, was released by the Midlands outfit in April, with Minstermen boss Russ Wilcox having now swooped to sign him.

Swan, who started his career at Leeds academy before moving to Manchester City - where he was their under-18s skipper - has yet to make his professional debut.

The Wakefield-born defender - who quit Leeds for Manchester along with teenage midfielder Louis Hutton in the summer of 2009, with City having to pay £800,000 in compensation - trained with the Minstermen for the final two weeks of the 2014-15 season.

Swan joined Wolves on the recommendation of Wanderers U21 coach Scott Sellars last summer following a successful trial, but failed to establish himself at Molineux.

Meanwhile, former Northern Ireland international goalkeeper Michael Ingham has agreed a new one-year deal with the Minstermen.

Midfielder Tom Platt and wingman Josh Carson have also signed 12-month contracts in a busy day at Bootham Crescent.
