Notts sign Yeates

30 January 2017

Notts County Football Club have confirmed the signing of Mark Yeates until the end of the season.

The winger, 32, joins from fellow Sky Bet League Two side Blackpool, for whom he has featured 20 times this season.

Yeates brings a wealth of experience with over 400 career appearances, more than 150 of which have been in the Championship.

The former Republic of Ireland Under 21 international started his career with Tottenham before moving to Colchester in 2007, where his performances earned him a £500,000 switch to Middlesbrough in 2009.

Moves to Sheffield United and Watford followed before spells in League One with Bradford and Oldham.

The Irishman said: "I'm over the moon. When I got told about the interest it was a no brainer for me.

"I know a few of the lads in the dressing room and that'll probably make it easier to settle in.

"I just want to get on the ball and try to make things happen - whether that be behind the front man or from out wide. I've always been about trying to make chances and I try to chip in with the odd goal when I can."

Notts manager Kevin Nolan added: "It's great to have Mark on board. He has vast experience and adds to our quality in attacking areas.

"I thoroughly look forward to working with him."

Yeates will wear squad number 10.
