The Imps are delighted to announce the signing of winger Cameron Stewart on a deal until January 23, 2018.
The 26-year-old arrives at Sincil Bank having previously been unattached after his departure from Doncaster Rovers.
Stewart came through the ranks at Manchester United before signing for Hull City in 2011.
He had loan spells with Burnley, Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United and Charlton Athletic during his time at the KC Stadium, before joining Ipswich Town in 2014.
Stewart had been training with the club over the last couple of weeks, and has impressed Danny Cowley and his coaching staff.
“We’re delighted to be able to bring him into the group. He’s a boy that’s got Championship pedigree having already played successfully there.” Cowley said.
“He’s a good character, and I’m sure he won’t mind me saying he’s lost his way just recently, but he’s come in and re-found his love for the game. He’s really focussed to push on from this point.”
The Manchester-born winger has been without a club since the summer of 2016, but has been training with numerous EFL clubs.
“We’ve been working really hard over the last couple of weeks to get him fit and improve his fitness levels. We’ll have to work hard to continually improve his match fitness, but we’ve seen enough from his technical ability, attitude and application to know that he will add to our group.
“I think we can benefit from him not playing too much recently, because we’re getting a really hungry player who’s got real quality. He’s a creator, a goal scorer and a set-piece specialist. We’re excited to add him to our group.” Cowley added.
Stewart has played most of his football in the Sky Bet Championship, but he has played in Sky Bet League One too.
“I am delighted to join the club. It’s been a long road to getting back playing so I’m looking forward to it.” Stewart said.
“Danny and Nicky have made me feel really welcome. It’s thanks to them two that I’m here. Hopefully I’ll have some more enjoyable times on the pitch here.”
The Imps’ latest signing will be available for tonight’s Checkatrade Trophy match against Everton.
