Notts County have bolstered their attacking options with the arrival of exciting forward Mason Bennett on loan from Derby County.

The 21-year-old, who made his first-team debut for the Rams at the age of 15 to become the club's youngest-ever player, moves to Meadow Lane until the end of the season.

A forward who can also operate out wide, Bennett spent time with Chesterfield during their League Two title-winning season in 2013-14 and Burton in 2014-15, when they also won promotion.

And he was thrilled to secure the move, saying: "I'm delighted to get it over the line because it's been going on for a couple of weeks now. It went down to the last day and fortunately we have got it done.

"This is a great club and a massive club which is going in the right direction and I want to help it push into League One.

"The manager knows what I can do on and off the ball. He wants me to come in and give the team something a bit different to what they have already.

"I'm here to gain more experience and make an impact."

Read the manager's thoughts on his new signing tomorrow.

Bennett is available for sponsorship until the end of the season. Contact Simon Fotheringham by email at or call 0115 955 7241 for more information.
