"It's a great move for me and I'm looking forward with tremendous enthusiasm to the start of the season," Page told the Echo
"Sam has told me his plans for the club and this is a club with ambition and with exciting times ahead - this is where I want to be. I'm a local lad and coming home, which will sound a bit cliche, but I intend to make it work - I want to play in every game this season, and I will do everything I can to help this club achieve its ultimate goal - the Premiership.
"I've never suffered for second best in my career and I don't intended to start now, I can't wait for that first whistle to the start of the season. I'm a proud man and I feel that there are exciting times ahead for the club and I want to be part of that experience."
Page joins a defensive line that already includes welsh international colleagues James Collins and Daniel Gabbidon and Aussie international Tony Vidmar. They are backed up by Rhys Weston, Chris Barker and Gary Croft.
Page, 29, was released by Sheff Utd where he was the captain for most of his time there. He made over 100 league appearances after a £350,000 move from Watford.
