Rochdale have completed the signing of goalkeeper David Lucas following his release from Swindon.

The 33-year-old, who had a year to run on his contract at the County Ground, agreed to have it terminated by mutual consent and will join Rochdale as a player/coach.

He has signed a 12-month deal at Spotland.

Rochdale manager Steve Eyre said: "David has been with us for long periods over pre-season and we like him very much.

"Even though he still has a couple of seasons left in him he's coming towards the end of his career in playing terms and we're looking to use his knowledge and experience in a coaching role at the club as well as playing an active part in the playing squad."

Lucas joined Swindon on a free transfer from Leeds in July 2009 and his previous clubs include Preston, Sheffield Wednesday and briefly Barnsley.
