Morecambe Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of striker Jonah Ayunga for an undisclosed fee from Bristol Rovers on a two-year deal.
The 24-year-old made 36 appearances in all competitions for the Gas last season, 31 of which came in Sky Bet League One.
Ayunga, who received his first international call up for Kenya in 2016, has also enjoyed spells with Dorchester Town, Sutton United and Havant & Waterlooville.
“I’m happy to be here, my first day went well and I’m looking to get settled in,” Ayunga said.
“It’s happened very quickly, three or four days ago I had no idea it was going to happen!
“I had a chat with the gaffer here and he’s convinced me to come, he said he’s been aware of me for a couple of years.
“It was good to make my League One debut last year and get a good amount of games, so knowing what it takes is what I’m going to bring to the team.”
Ayunga has become the Shrimps’ 14th arrival this summer, and manager Stephen Robinson is excited by the club’s latest recruit.
“I’m delighted, Jonah’s a boy I’ve kept tabs on since Bristol Rovers signed him and he has a lot of good attributes,” Robinson said.
“He is a big, strong boy, he can run in behind, and there are aspects of his game we know we can improve, he’s still young and there’s a lot of potential in him.
“I’m trying to get two in every position and within our budget it’s difficult, but we’ve managed to do that in a short space of time, people are starting to gel and understand, and I think Jonah just adds to that.”
