The 35-year-old joins from Kosice in his home country, who he captained to the Slovak Extraliga title.

Coach Tony Hand said: "He comes very highly recommended and having been a captain of a championship winning team, can only benefit the whole squad.

"He shows up every night and plays hard if required and I am he sure will play a big part in our efforts to retain the championship."
