Chester have signed former Burton defender Ian Sharps on a one-year deal.

In May, AFC Telford announced that the 34-year-old had agreed to sign for them after spending the back end of last season on loan with the Bucks.

However, the former Rotherham, Shrewsbury and Tranmere centre-back has now opted to move to Chester.

"There had been word that he'd signed with Telford, but that wasn't the case," Chester manager Steve Burr told the club website.external-link

"I got in touch with him during the summer and when we sat down, had a chat and I'm delighted that he's chosen to sign for us."

Sharps is the fifth arrival at Chester this summer ahead of the new National League season.
