Notts County sign Kristian Dennis and Andy Kellett

Joe Jones

Notts County have announced the double signing of Chesterfield striker Kristian Dennis and his former loan teammate, left-back Andy Kellett, who joins from Wigan Athletic.

Dennis, 28, scored 21 goals for the Spireites last season, an impressive return which however could not keep the Derbyshire club in League Two, and joins for an undisclosed fee.

Kellett, meanwhile, was on loan at the Proact Stadium last term but arrives at Meadow Lane after having been released by the Championship-bound Latics.

“I’m aiming for more (goals), to be honest,” Dennis, who penned a three-year deal, told the official site. “Hopefully, playing in a team that’s challenging for promotion, I’ll get 25 - if not more.

“I like to work hard, get hold of the ball and make runs in behind – and to put the ball in the net, which is what I’m paid to do. I back myself on either foot when I’ve got a shot on goal.”

Kellett said: “I spoke with the manager about a week ago and wanted to come here straightaway.

“I know how passionate he is from when I was coming through as a young lad at Bolton. He was someone I looked up to. He was a leader on the pitch and I’m sure he’ll try and get the best out of me.

“I like to think I’m quite exciting – I like to run with the ball and counter-attack.

“I grew up as a left back, played as a wing back at Plymouth and when I signed for Wigan they saw me more as an attack-minded player. I think that’s where my preferred position is.”

Really happy with both of these signings. For two reasons, it shows that we are going to play more attacking next season. Also we are changing our style of play. Props to Nolan and Hardy for investing and providing quality players to use and utilise next season.

I'm pleased to see a striker and a winger join the club. Hopefully Dennis can help fire us to a top finish, whilst Kellett should be a decent asset at 24.

A fantastic start in the transfer market.... I would love to see Ben Hall come back. He may not fancy it though because he knows Kevin won’t drop Duffer and he will be looking for game time.
