EX-TOWN midfielder Dwayne Mattis has signed for Bury.
The Huddersfield-born 22-year-old, pictured left, was released in April after making 79 appearances for Town, only six of which were during last season.
Mattis, who is a Republic of Ireland Under 21 cap, scored three goals.
Having been associated with Town since the age of 12, he has now penned a 12-month contract at Gigg Lane.
Bury boss Graham Barrow said: "He had three other offers but chose to come to us, so I'm delighted.
"He is a different type of midfield player to the ones we already have."
Referee Mark Clattenburg, who took charge of Town's play-off final against Mansfield, will become the youngest-ever Premiership whistler after being promoted at the age of 29.
Clattenburg, from County Durham, also took charge of Town's 1-1 home draw against Rochdale in March.
Middlesbrough chief executive Keith Lamb has flown to Croatia in the hope of securing the £4m signature of Leeds striker Mark Viduka, who is on a family holiday in Dubrovnik.
Boro are the only club to have had an offer accepted by relegated Leeds for the Australian international.
