Sutton United have re-signed left-back Dan Wishart from Sky Bet League Two side Forest Green Rovers on a two year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old joined the U's in 2014 and was a crucial part of the Vanarama National South title-winning side of 2016.

In his first spell with Sutton, Wishart made 98 appearances, scoring seven goals before securing a move to Gloucestershire where he was part of the team which earned promotion to the EFL with a 3-1 victory over Tranmere Rovers at Wembley Stadium.

Wishart is Sutton's second acquisition of the summer with right-back Dale Bennett also making the switch from FGR to Sutton earlier this month.

Sutton manager Paul Doswell told the club's website: “It’s something we’ve been working on since the season ended, and the wait has been worthwhile.

"I’m very pleased to get Dan back to the club where he was superb in our championship season.

"His pace and ability to deliver the ball will be a great asset and I’m very excited to be working with him again."

It's been a busy few days for Doswell who has offloaded Simon Walton and Moses Emmanuel to National South side Billericay Town and cancelled the contract of Anthony Jeffrey, having already allowed several other players to try their luck elsewhere.

The Sutton boss explained why he's been trimming his squad: ”With Louis John being signed by Cambridge, Ross Stearn, Simon Walton, and Moses Emmanuel moving on, Ross Worner joining Chelmsford on loan, and Terrell Thomas and Byron Harrison returning to their clubs after being on loan with us, that’s seven players from last season who have left us, and there could still be one or two more.

"We’ve reduced the squad down, as we’re trying to make four quality signings that would enhance the starting eleven, and to do this we have to have a smaller squad but perhaps with enhanced quality.

"We’re looking to add real pace and strength to the team this year, and we’ve targeted players that we know and who will fit straight into the dressing room.”
