26 year old Cameroon left sided defender has signed on free transfer till end of the season after being released from Olympiakos. This has been a deal in the pipeline for a while now and after a short trial spell with the club has he has been proving his fitness before signing for the team.

Gaeten Bong was a player that not long ago was linked with the likes of Arsenal. Yet after a short spell in Greek football had his contract cancelled, and has been a free agent looking for a new club.

We offered him the chance to train, and with Andrew Taylor's performances a worrying sight on our left hand side of our defence, Bong will surely become an important part of our defensive shape in the forth coming games.

With money obviously an issue free signings and loan deals maybe the rest of the deals we are going to see in this window.
