Defender Thierry Audel has re-joined the Club on a three-month loan from Crewe Alexandra.
Audel, who played 14 times for the Imps at the end of last season during a similar loan spell from the League One side, will be with City until January 17th 2015, although Crewe will have the option of a 24-hour recall following the completion of the first 28 days.
The 27-year-old's breakthrough came at Auxerre in his native France before a five-year stint in the Italian league with Triestina, San Marino Calcio and Pisa. He joined Crewe in the summer of 2013 having spent the latter part of the 2012/13 season with Macclesfield Town.
Handed the vacant number 24 squad shirt, Audel has been granted permission to play in the FA Cup and FA Trophy and will go straight into the squad for Saturday's Vanarama Conference home fixture against Wrexham.
