Striker signs permanent deal at the JD Stadium
Danny Nardiello has put pen to paper on an 18 month contract with the club. The club also has an option for a further 12 months if required.
Danny arrived at the JD Stadium on loan from Rotherham United on 15 November for his second loan spell with the club. He had previously enjoyed two months at Bury in 2009 – scoring four goals from six games.
His move to Bury quickly brought rewards as goals quickly arrived, his first coming in a 1-0 win over Hartlepool United on 26 November.
Danny has thus far made a further 11 appearances scoring on five occasions. His five goals for this time around at Bury now puts him on ten goals for the season with five coming from his role at Rotherham from the start of the current season.
Speaking soon after signing the contract, Danny said: ‘This is good for me and good for the club. It gives me that added security, but it’s not just that, it’s being a part of something special that is happening at this club.
There are a number of things here that excite me starting with the chairman. He’s obviously investing in the club; he’s already put a lot of work into the club and he has an aim of where he wants this club to be, and thankfully for me, he wants me to be a part of that.
Secondly there is the manager, I’ve only worked with him for a short while but he is one of the best managers I have worked with. He goes about things the right way and he wants to play football the right way. He’s very infectious on all the players, not just me. Also with my family being so close and living in Bury, it’s just perfect all round.
This club looks like its going places and I’m thrilled to be here and to be a part of it.’
Meanwhile, manager David Flitcroft said: ‘I think it shows our intent, with the signings of Jim McNulty and now Danny Nardiello, they are both similar player and Danny can spearhead our attack. He is the right sort of player, the right professional and after meeting his family it was just the right thing to do.
He enjoys it here and he enjoys his football here. He scores goals and he will scores goals for us. We have been working for three weeks on this and we have worked hard on this. The trust Danny has in the chairman has got this over the line, he knows we are improving and from listening to Danny speaking he knows the project and it’s a club that he knows is going places.
He wants to learn, he wants to get better and he wants to improve, that’s what I love about him. He will be coaching in the academy as well, he will pass on that knowledge as well and that’s important for us as a club. He’s a big part of where we want to go.”
