Austin Rettig has sent a message to Manchester Giants fans ahead of his arrival in the UK next week.

The American shooting guard became the first player in the new Giants era to be signed on a visa and has been joined by David Kadiri, who has already arrived in the country and played in an exhibition game.

A delay to Rettig’s paperwork means he missed the club’s trip to Spain, however he is due to arrive in Manchester on Tuesday.
