It never fails to amaze me just how many random names you can pair up with sign manufacturers!

Instantly knew this was a wind-up because:

a) It was you posting it
b) Anita Asante wouldn't be eligible to play for us

Potentially a very good signing, but it seems he's been in and out of the treatment room for the last couple of years and struggled to get a run of games together.

If he can stay fit, he looks like as close to guaranteed goals as we're going to get - but that looks like a big 'if' based on his recent past.

Looking like Hazel is on his way, if Asante can stay fit it’s an unbelievable signing.

Nothing on the official site as yet. Is this true or are people reading between the lines?

The club twitter account has put out a cryptic tweet about calling the AA for a new striker, so unless there are any other free-agent strikers who are well known at our level with those initials, or work as a part-time car mechanic, then it seems fairly nailed on.

Sounds great news then! Hopefully he can stay fit. Wonder if Hazel leaving is a done deal or if that is rumour controll going into overload? Asante and Hazel in attack could give us plenty of striking options going forward.

Confirmed now on the site, needs a mini pre season before he’s fit so won’t feature tonight.

Just been in touch with a mate from Chesterfield who rates him highly but did say he was injured a fair bit last season.

Keep him fit and I'm pretty hopeful we'll have the goals needed to pull us out of the relegation zone.

He's brilliant or at least he was when I saw him at Chesterfield.

A very good signing, IF he stays fit.

Stoddart has indicated Hazel is on his way.

If fit, a truly excellent signing. Not a surprise if Hazel moves on because of this

Chesterfield Twitter confirms he has left the club after contract termination by mutual consent. Wikipedia also has him as being a Darlo player

Really hope this works out, but our track record of signing "crocked players" is not impressive. Just being honest.

He looks strong, composed and with a poachers instinct from that compilation. If we can keep him fit and get the ball to him in and around the penalty area, he'll score goals.

Interesting comment That he needs a” mini preseason “ before he is fit. We don’t want to be offloading Hazel any time soon…..
