    Rochdale have completed the signing of former Falkirk defender Marc Twaddle on a free transfer.

    The 24-year-old became Dale's fourth signing of the summer after Steve Eyre' side saw off strong competition to bring Twaddle to Spotland on a two-year deal.

    Eyre said: "Marc has a lot of potential and we are delighted he has decided to come and join us.

    "Some Championship teams had also shown an interest but we got an opportunity to get him down for talks and explain what we are about."

    Twaddle is a former Rangers youth team player, but failed to make his mark at Ibrox. He moved to Falkirk in 2003.

    He spent two years at Partick Thistle in 2007, but he returned to the Bairns in 2009.

    Eyre added: "He is comfortable on the left of defence, either out wide or as a left-sided centre half.

    "Craig Dawson and Marcus Holness were outstanding last season, but both were right-footed in the main and Marc will add a bit of balance in the back line.

    "Marc is the right age and we are hoping he'll flourish at Spotland and become an established defender at this club and reach his full potential."
