Peter Cavanagh

Relegated Rochdale have agreed to sign defender Peter Cavanagh on a free transfer from Football League newcomers Fleetwood Town.

The versatile defender played under Dale boss John Coleman at Accrington.

Cavanagh played 25 times for Dale's League Two rivals Fleetwood in last season's promotion campaign.

He has agreed a one-year deal to become Dale's second signing of the summer, following striker George Donnelly's move from Macclesfield Town in May.
