Grant: I'm absolutely buzzing

20 July 2017

Notts County's returning loanee Jorge Grant says he's 'absolutely buzzing' to be back at Meadow Lane.

The midfielder has joined the Magpies on loan until the end of the season and couldn't have wished for a better destination.

He said: "I'm absolutely buzzing. As soon as I knew I was going out on loan, the only place I was going to go was here.

"I had a few offers from the SPL and League One, but this is the place I want to play football.

"The club is on the up and I really loved the three or four months I was here.

"The manager gives you an amazing amount of confidence. He was really good with me, giving me little pointers which helped me a lot last season."

Kevin Nolan was a big influence in convincing Grant to return

Grant is fresh from a Florida training camp with parent club Nottingham Forest.

And, despite missing the final days of the trip with a thigh niggle, the midfielder hopes to get a game against Wigan Athletic at Meadow Lane on Saturday.

He said: "I feel good. That thigh was just a bit of tightness but it's fine and ready to go.

"I haven't had any minutes at all this pre-season, so the manager said I'd probably get a few towards the end [against Wigan].

"We'll see how it goes in training."
