Notts County have completed their first signing of the summer with the capture of experienced defender Ben Turner.
The centre-back, who has amassed almost 300 league appearances and has played in each of England’s top four tiers, was most recently with Mansfield Town and played for the Stags at Meadow Lane in February.
Notts manager Neal Ardley said: “In a lot of games last season we lacked physical presence, so at the top of our list of priorities was a dominant centre back.
“Working with the new owners – and the stats they’ve got – Ben came out top of the pile. I know Ben from our days at Cardiff, so I understand his character.
“He brings aerial dominance, leadership, experience and know-how. To attract him to come to us when he had several League Two possibilities on the table is brilliant.”
