York City have signed defender Danny Blanchett following his release by Burton Albion.

The 24-year-old, who has agreed a one-year contract, made 14 league appearances for the Brewers last season after joining from Crewe.

Boss Gary Mills told BBC Radio York: "He's a player I've always liked and he gives us strong competition."

Meanwhile, defender Chris Doig and full-back Jon Challinor have agreed new one-year deals at Bootham Crescent.
