Jassem Sukar, pictured centre, has joined York City

YORK City manager Gary Mills says his summer shopping is over after former Dundee United and Arbroath centreback Jassem Sukar tonight joined the club on a permanent basis.

Sukar, 21, has impressed manager Gary Mills during an impressive pre-season trial.

Born in Hartlepool, Sukar started on the books at Middlesbrough and Sunderland and joined Dundee United in August 2015.

After loan spells at Peterhead and Brechin, he played 28 games last season for Arbroath who won the Scottish second division title.

Mills said: “He’s been with us for a couple of weeks now – a left-side centrehalf that can operate at leftback if needed.

“He has come in to be part of the 18 man squad that we have now put together and he will only get better,” Mills added.

“He wants to do well, he is one of the younger players who will get better by learning from the more experienced players.”

Mills confirmed that there are no plans to bring any more new players before the start of the season.
