"Douglas is someone who shows extreme potential, he was with us last season, had some brilliant moments, some learning moments and there was more than enough on show of what Douglas is about for me to want to work with him again.

"He is a player that I believe has got a really bright future. He is someone who I have worked hard on over the last few weeks to make sure that we got it done so I am delighted now that it is.

"I am looking forward to working with him through pre-season as he's looked powerful and sharp so far. Hopefully he hits the ground running."
