Reds Boss John McDermott:

"I'm pleased to have Steve with us at the Reds, he is excellent cover for us in a position which is quite light at the moment. It's a good chance for both parties to look at each other. He is a very talented centre back with plenty of experience across all levels."

"He is very well thought of and his experience and quality is another asset for us. he hasn't had much game time so it's important for him that he gets back up to speed, but his quality will help us out and it's a great addition for us."
