Notts County have confirmed the signing of forward Kyle Wootton on a season-long loan from Scunthorpe United.
The big striker arrived at Meadow Lane this morning and will train with his new team-mates for the first time ahead of Saturday’s trip to Yeovil.
The 22-year-old signed a new deal with Scunthorpe in January but wanted a new test for the 2019-20 season.
“This is a big club that wants to be back on the up and in the EFL,” said Wootton. “It’s a good challenge and I like that.
“There were teams in League Two interested but I felt this was the right move for me because of the manager and how wanted he made me feel.
“I know this league well. I’m a fairly young player but have a lot of games under my belt and that helps you no matter what, so hopefully I bring what I know I can to the team.
“I’m physical, I like to hold the ball up and bring others into play, I win headers and look to get on the end of crosses but I can play neat and tidy as well.”
