We have completed the signing of left-back Jordan Barnett on a deal until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old joins us following the expiration of his contract with Oldham Athletic, for whom he made 17 League Two appearances – plus another seven in cup competitions - after joining the Latics on a short-term deal in September.
And Barnett is now looking forward to furthering his experience with a successful spell at Meadow Lane.
“I really want to do well here and get this club back into the EFL,” said our new arrival after completing his first training session.
“I’ve got quite a lot of pace and power – I’m a fit lad as well who likes to go up and down. I’m a good set piece taker, too, and get quite a lot of assists.”
Barnett, who can also play on the wing or in central midfield, represented Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley as a youngster before his performances for hometown club Penistone Church earned him a second-year scholarship with Burnley in 2017.
A further spell with Barnsley was to follow before he impressed in non-league once more – this time with Pontefract Collieries - to earn his move to Oldham.
And the Yorkshireman believes the steps he has already taken in the senior game will stand him in good stead at Meadow Lane.
“I’d never played men’s football before, so it was a great experience to play in the EFL this season,” he said.
“The step up was tough – it’s a lot more rough and aggressive than Under 23s football – but I got used to it quite quickly and the more games I played, the easier it got for me.
“Getting more gametime here at Notts County will help me improve as well.”
