The 22-year-old midfielder has arrived from Rochdale in a fee worth around £150,000.

Cannon joins the Blues on a two-and-a-half-year deal, with a club option for an additional 12 months.

He made 127 appearances and scored six times for the Dale after coming through their youth ranks.

However, having last summer signed a new one-year contract, he fell out of favour at the League One club.

Cannon featured 16 times for Keith Hill's side this season, of which only seven were starts.
