Eagles, 25, is looking forward to meeting his new team-mates and hopes to contribute to a successful season.

Mears, 28, added: “I’m really looking forward to working with a manager I’ve worked with before and playing in the Premier League.

“From the outside looking in, this has seemed like it is a club going in the right direction.
