Geraldo Bajrami signed a two-year deal at Meadow Lane after compensation was agreed with Kidderminster Harriers this summer.
The former Birmingham City defender, who can also play in defensive midfield, was another impressive performer in the National League North in 2021-22.
Born in Birmingham to Albanian parents, Bajrami bounced back from two unsuccessful trials to eventually earn a scholarship with the Blues.
He skippered Birmingham’s Under 18s to the semi-finals of the 2017-18 FA Youth Cup and went on to earn himself a professional contract and the Under 23s captaincy, while also representing Albania at youth level.
Bajrami was given his first-team debut by former manager Pep Clotet in an EFL Cup trip to Portsmouth and was then handed back-to-back Championship starts against West Brom and Hull City.
His development continued with a loan move to Solihull which was frustratingly curtailed by Covid and the following season he ended his stay at St Andrew’s with silverware, beating Sheffield United Under 23s in the national final of the 2020-21 Professional Development League.
He was snapped up by Kiddy in 2021 and stated his desire to get a full season of men’s football under his belt – something he achieved by making 42 appearances and establishing himself as one of the best defenders in the league.
