Fourth January addition as winger arrives

Town have completed the signing of Simon Dawkins on a short-term contract until the end of the season, with the Club having the option of a further year.

The 31-year-old winger joins as a free agent, and has previous Championship experience having made more than 50 league appearances for Derby County.

Simon came through the youth system at Tottenham Hotspur but never made a first-time appearance during his time at White Hart Lane.

While with Spurs he had loan spells with Leyton Orient, San Jose Earthquakes and Aston Villa, playing four times in the Premier League with Paul Lambert's Villa in 2013.

He then moved on loan to Derby in October 2013 and signed permanently for Steve McClaren’s side in the January transfer window.

Simon was with the Rams until January 2016 before moving back to San Jose, this time on a permanent basis, where he scored five goals in 38 MLS appearances.

A Jamaican international, Simon has earned 19 caps for his country and will wear the number 49 shirt for Town this term.
