John Rooney, younger brother of England striker Wayne, has signed for Bury after a successful trial.

The 22-year-old spent two years in the USA with New York Red Bulls and Orlando City before a short spell with Barnsley last season.

Rooney, who began his career with Macclesfield, impressed during the opening weeks of pre-season and was offered a 12-month deal by Kevin Blackwell.

The forward becomes the Shakers' second signing of the day after Chris Sedgwick also penned a 12-month contract.
