Highly-rated Notts County Academy graduate Kyle Dixon has signed a new one-year deal with the club and has been told he will be playing in a new position from next season.
Dixon, who captained the Notts County youth team that reached the final of the Midland Youth Cup in the 2012.13 season, turned professional last summer, signing an initial six-month deal before earning an extension until the end of the campaign.
Having impressed manager Shaun Derry with his attitude and development, the 19-year-old has now been given a further one-year deal but has also been told that he will be operating predominantly as a right back in the forthcoming campaign.
Derry announced at the Notts County Official Supporters’ Association Young Player of the Year Awards evening that he saw Dixon as a full back moving forwards, competing with Mustapha Dumbuya for the right back slot in the first team.
Both Dixon and Derry spoke to Magpie Player about the youngster’s new contract and their shared excitement for the player’s continued development at the club that he has supported all of his life.
