Turner was Neal Ardley's first signing ahead of the 2019-20 season and comes into the new campaign hoping to shake off the injury problems which hampered him in his first year at Meadow Lane.

The imposing centre back had enjoyed a strong start to life in black and white but a calf problem from December onwards, coupled with a nasty illness, prevented him from playing again before March's coronavirus lockdown.

Turner was able to regain his fitness and secure starting berths in both the semi-final and final of last season's play-off campaign and will be hoping to secure regular game time in 2020-21.

He has Premier League pedigree having played in England's top flight with Cardiff City after winning the Championship with the Bluebirds in 2012-13.

He scored a dramatic equaliser in the 2012 League Cup final to earn Cardiff a penalty shootout against Liverpool, which they went on to lose.

Turner started his career witth Coventry and has spent time with the likes of Burton Albion and Mansfield since his professional debut in 2006.
