Wheel said: “I have had some great times in academy football and have been privileged with some brilliant young goalkeepers and backroom staff, including Norwich’s first team goalkeeper coach Ed Wooten. 

“This is a massive club that you can see is going places.”

County head coach Ian Burchnall said: “Tom comes highly recommended by a good friend of mine from Liverpool who certainly knows his goalkeeping.”
