Having worked hard to regain full fitness, the former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur stopper admitted that a move to Wiltshire had been on his mind during the off-season.
“It’s what I wanted all over summer,” he told STFC PlayerHD. “I’m really happy and looking forward to the next few years ahead. I worked quite hard over the summer I’m in good shape – I’m back from injury - so happy to be back here and looking forward to the season.”
He added: “I was out for a long time last season. I was looking forward to getting back and I can’t wait to get started. I’m just happy that I’m back here. There’s nowhere that I’d rather be.”
