Defender Manny Smith was the second new player to sign a contract at Meadow Lane on Monday, joining Notts County on a two-year deal.
Smith, who came through the youth ranks at fellow League 1 side Walsall, is an established centre back who has come of age at this level with the Saddlers.
The 23-year-old was delighted to have sealed his move to Meadow Lane and is relishing the next chapter in his blossoming career.
“It’s a big club, very ambitious and I just can’t wait to get started,” he told Magpie Player on Monday.
“I had a few options, but the gaffer here showed great interest in me, I sat down and spoke to him a few times and he was very keen on me and very keen on taking the club forwards.”
Magpie Player subscribers will be able to see the first interview with Manny Smith on Monday and the first official news of any further signings will be confirmed here on the club’s Official Website.
