Grimsby Town have signed versatile former Portsmouth defender Danny East on a one-year contract.

East, 23, made six appearances while on loan at Aldershot last season and four appearances for League Two Pompey.

The former Hull trainee had previous loan spells with Northampton and Gillingham before joining Portsmouth in 2013, but was released last month.

The Mariners lost 5-3 on penalties to Bristol Rovers in last month's Conference play-off final.
