Chester have completed the signing of attacking midfielder George Green on a one-year deal from Nuneaton Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old came through the ranks at Everton before joining Tranmere Rovers on-loan, where he scored on his debut against AFC Wimbledon, and represents a 10th summer signing for new Chester joint-bosses Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson.

The Dewsbury-born midfielder represented England from Under 16 to Under 18 level, and has since had spells with Oldham Athletic, Ossett Albion, Burnley, Kilmarnock and Norwegian outfit Viking.

Green had a brief spell under Morley and Johnson at Salford City during the 2016/17 season, making eight appearances.

The midfielder has penned a one-year deal with Chester having an option to a second year if he impresses at the Swansway Chester Stadium.

Green has openly admitted to suffering in the past with depression and addiction, which combined to bring a premature end to his time with Everton.

In an interview with the Daily Mail in April, he revealed he had tried to take his own life while at Salford City, but has since settled with partner, Charli, and their young daughter Daisy.

Green has also found help and support from former Nottingham Forest full-back Gary Charles, who battled alcoholism and now runs help service GCSportsCare.

Green could make his Chester debut away at Llandudno in pre-season on Friday (kick-off 7.30pm) at the Giant Hospitality Stadium.
