We are delighted to announce the signing of former England Youth International defender Harry Toffolo, who joins on a two-year deal following his departure from Millwall.
The 22-year-old left-back becomes City’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of Bruno Andrade.
Toffolo is a product of the Norwich City Youth setup, and was part of the u18 team that won the FA Youth Cup in 2013. During his youth career, he also played 10 games as an U18, U19 and U20 for England.
His first loan spell was with Swindon Town as a teenager in League One, making 30 appearances during the 2014/15 season with the Robins.
The left-back had loan spells in the Championship and League One the following season with Rotherham United and Peterborough, before returning to the third tier with Scunthorpe United on loan at the beginning of the 2016/17 season.
After spending the season on loan with the Iron, Toffolo then joined Doncaster Rovers on loan at the beginning of last season, before joining Millwall on a permanent deal in January.
Danny Cowley said: “He’s a 22-year-old who already has vast experience having played in the Championship and League One, while doing very well in those loan spells away from Norwich.
“He was a big part of Norwich’s team that won the FA Youth Cup, and he’s a really bright young player with a fantastic future in the game ahead of him. To have 10 England Youth caps, it shows we’ve got one of the best left backs at his age.
“He had lots of options, and lots of offers in League One, and the fact he’s trusted us to continue his development is something we should be really pleased about.
The defender, who turns 23 in August, is delighted to make the move to Sincil Bank and can’t wait to get started.
“It’s exciting, it’s a club that once you’re given an opportunity from, everyone would say yes,” Toffolo said.
“The first thing Danny Cowley said to me was that coming to Lincoln would give me the opportunity to play in front of 10,000 people, and to do that with Lincoln City is fantastic.
“The focus is on Lincoln City, and you don’t understand how much I’m relishing this opportunity. I want to be part of it.”
