Jimmy is a midfielder who signed a two-year contract with Rochdale on the eve of this season.
The 30-year-old, who has made nearly 450 career appearances, started his career at Liverpool and was part of their FA Youth Cup winning teams of 2005/06 and 2006/07, before moving to Shrewsbury for a short spell.
From there, Ryan joined Accrington, where he spent three years, with his performances for Stanley throughout the 2010/11 season seeing him voted onto the PFA Team of the Year.
Time with Scunthorpe and Chesterfield followed, before Jimmy moved to Fleetwood and again impressed, winning the club’s Player of the Year award in 2015/16.
Most recently, the Liverpudlian spent the last two seasons at Blackpool, where he captained the side during the 2017/18 campaign, but turned down a new contract at Bloomfield Road this summer to pursue opportunities elsewhere.
