Accrington Stanley have signed former Nottingham Forest left-back Alan Rogers on a free transfer.

Rogers, who turned 30 on Wednesday, comes to The Fraser Eagle Stadium following his release from League One club Bradford City back in October.

The former Tranmere Rovers and Leicester City man has made the most of the January transfer window to agree a deal with John Coleman's side.

Rogers should be available for Saturday's crucial bottom-of-the table clash at Boston United.

Cardiff City defender Joe Jacobson, meanwhile, has extended his loan with Stanley for another four weeks, while Jeff Whitley and Jemal Easter have returned to The Bluebirds after loans with Stoke City and Bristol Rovers respectively.

Meanwhile, Forest centre-back Vincent Fernandez has joined Conference side Grays Athletic on a month's loan.

The Frenchman has already spent time on loan with League Two sides Wycombe Wanderers and Blackpool before opting for a third loan move to Grays.
