Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Cambridge United have confirmed the signing of midfielder Adriano Moke from York City for an undisclosed fee
The 22-year-old has joined the U’s on a one-year contract with the option to extend the deal for a further 12 months.
Moke is a product of the Glenn Hoddle Academy and made 28 first-team appearances in all competitions for the Minstermen last season.
He was offered a new deal by York boss Gary Mills at the end of the 2011/12 campaign but turned it down.
Commenting on the capture of Moke, Cambridge boss Jez George told the club’s official website: “AJ (Moke) will give us competition for places in both wide areas, and offer something different to what we have in the squad.
“He is a young player who, although he doesn’t have many league appearances under his belt, we feel has the potential to be a real asset for this club in the long term.
“He is a very quick, explosive and direct player who loves dribbling with the ball and we think that he will excite our fans.”
