The Mariners beat off competition from as far afield as Spain, as the talented Welsh international heads for Blundell Park.
Las Palmas were keen to offer the versatile left-sided former Bristol City man a trial, and he also spent some time training with Northampton Town during the close season.
Born in Germany, the 30-year-old is sure to become a firm favourite with the Town supporters, and he joins Chettle as new signings for boss Paul Groves.
Meanwhile, the First Division side have taken star duo Danny Coyne and Phil Jeavons off the transfer list.
Town have also been running the rule over West Ham midfielder Grant McCann, during a trial spell with the club.
