Weale has penned a one-year contract, bolstering a goalkeeping department depleted following the departures of Lee Grant and Kelle Roos, while winger Anya has signed a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Watford.

County manager Nigel Pearson told the club’s official website: “We’re delighted to get Ikechi Anya here. I have met with him this evening and he is certainly a very enthusiastic individual.


“He gives us more balance to the squad and we have someone that is versatile in wide areas. He can play out wide, at full-back or as a wing-back.

“I’m really pleased with the potential that he brings to us.”

Meanwhile, striker Chris Martin has signed a season-long loan deal at Fulham, who have paid a loan fee and have the option to buy the 27-year-old.
