Forest Green have made their third signing of the week by landing Regan Hendry from Scottish Championship outfit Raith Rovers.
Aberdeen and Hibernian were among his suitors in the Scottish Premiership, while several clubs in England were keeping tabs on the ex-Celtic youngster.
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder heads to the innocent New Lawn on a two-year-deal after helping the Kirkcaldy-based outfit to a third-placed finish in the Scottish Championship, just behind Hearts and Dundee.
Hendry was an integral member of Rovers’ Scottish League One winning squad during the 2019/20 season – and during the previous campaign, he was named in both the PFA and SPFL Championship Team of the Year.
Born in Edinburgh, Hendrystarted his professional career with Celtic and represented his country at Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 levels.
Rich Hughes, Director of Football, told FGR Media: “We’re delighted to add someone of Regan’s ability and character to our squad ahead of the new season.
“Regan is a player that we have been tracking for some time, he’s performed well over the last 18 months we’ve been monitoring him. He’s a well-balanced footballer with good ability to pass the ball forward and is a player our fans will enjoy watching.”
