ALEX Rodman is set to put pen to paper on a new deal at Tamworth today.

The former Nuneaton striker's future had been up in the air after a trial at League One side Notts County collapsed.

The 23-year-old is now set to commit to the Lambs for another year and insisted: "I will get my head down and do my best for Tamworth."

He added: "I have ambitions to play at a higher level.

"I love football and playing in the Football League is something that I have always dreamed of.

"I'm not going to make a secret of that but that's nothing personal against Tamworth.

"I have enjoyed my time at The Lamb. I like the players here and I enjoy working with Gary Mills, Darron Gee and Des Lyttle.

"A potential move to Notts County hasn't materialised for one reason or another, so I'll just knuckle down now and give 100 per cent for Tamworth.

"It's up to me to stay injury free now, get some regular games under my belt and produce some good performances for Tamworth.

"If I produce some good performances next season, I will create some interest from Football League clubs again.

"I have spoken to the gaffer and he has said if the right move comes along and the deal is right for everyone as the season progresses, he will look at that.

"I just want to get playing again now to be honest.

"I really feel like I'm good shape physically and my head is in a good place at the moment."

Rodman revealed he is looking forward to linking up with new attacking signings such as Danny Thomas and Kyle Perry.

He added: "We have lost some good players and that's disappointing but I have to say the gaffer has brought some good lads in.

"Kyle and Danny look like they will be good assets to the team and I've been really impressed by some of the trialists like James Reid and Mark Dudley.

"Hopefully we can get a few of them on board and it will stand us in good stead for the start of the season."
