Airdrie have signed former Man City, Charlton and Hartlepool defender Terrell Agyemang on a season-long loan from Middlesbrough..

The 21-year-old English right-back can play in various positions along the backline, as well as an attacking midfielder.

Agyemang told the club's website: "It's a new challenge so I'm looking forward to it. I've heard about how Airdrie play, so that attracted me a lot.

"I just want to come and enjoy my football again and get playing.

"I'd say I'm quite technical, I like to get on the ball a lot and get play moving. I can bring energy, and I'm quite versatile in playing positions - so yeah, energy and technique."

Boss Rhys McCabe said: "Terrell is a very technical player, having been brought up in some big academies, including Man City, where he played with the under-23s and trained with the first team.

"He's at a stage now where he's really ready to kick on and play. He understands what we're trying to do here, and he brings real quality - I think the fans will be delighted with this one.

"He gives you a goal threat, and can play as an eight, a wing-back, or a full-back - so he can cover a few positions, which is a bonus."
