Rochdale have confirmed the signing of former Bury defender Jim McNulty on a two-year deal.
The 30-year-old, who was released by the Shakers last month following their promotion to League One, previously played under Dale boss Keith Hill at Barnsley.
"I have been chasing Jim since I came back to the football club. He's a good defender at a very good age," Hill told the club's official website. "We have a very good, strong player and he knows me and how I want to play the game. I believe his best years maybe in front of him."
McNulty made 30 appearances in all competitions for Bury during the 2014-15 campaign.
