New signing Craig Mackail-Smith says he 'jumped at the chance' to join Wycombe and is excited to be part of the squad for the upcoming season.

The striker signed a one-year deal with the Chairboys, and arrives at Adams Park as one of the EFL's most prolific strikers with 171 professional club goals to his name.

The 33-year-old arrives on a free transfer after leaving Luton Town in the summer, having finished last season on loan at Peterborough where he scored five times in his third spell with the club.

Speaking after completing the move to Wanderers, Mackail-Smith said he was delighted to be joining Gareth Ainsworth's squad.

“It’s nice to have got the deal done and I’m looking forward to getting started now," he said.

"I was training with Peterborough over the summer but when I heard about the interest from Wycombe, I jumped at the chance to come down here.

"Last season they scored a fantastic amount and have started well again this season so I’m excited be a part of it."

Mackail-Smith goes straight into contention to make his debut in this weekend's League Two clash with Notts County and the striker said it would brilliant to play a part.

“I’m a little bit behind with not having had a proper pre-season," he added.

"But I spoke to Gareth and we’ll take it step by step and if I can play on Saturday then that would be fantastic.”
