Reported by NEP:

 

Notts County are considering a move for Belgian international Gill Swerts as their search for talent moves across Europe.

The Magpies are understood to be seriously interested in the midfielder, who is currently a free agent after leaving NAC Breda following relegation from the Dutch top flight, the Eredivisie, last season.

Swerts can also play right-back and is believed to know boss Ricardo Moniz from his time in Holland, where he has played for a string of top sides.

Having started his career at Feyenoord, the 32-year-old enjoyed loan spells at Excelsior and ADO Den Haag before permanently moving to Vitesse in 2005.

Sounds promising. I'm glad Moniz is getting to use his European links.

I'd have to picked off the floor if we managed to sign players of this caliber. We are in the bottom division of the football league. This guy could play in the Championship! Unless we are suddenly flush with cash? That might explain it. One last pay day......

Good player, I haven't heard much of him the past 3-4 years but I do remember him before that.

It's interesting to see us being linked with European players, as it's quite weird for me. Yes Moniz will have experience with players of this type, yet it's the unknown for Notts and we never really attempted to explore this market. I wonder if Ricardo is using contacts to find released talent and hoping to pull them in here? I would guess about his wages, as I am sure the pound helps but who knows.

He could be a great signing, even if we only got 1 to 2 seasons out of him.

I think something has been lost in translation - my understanding from the Dutch article is that he hopes to join up with the squad for pre-season training, not necessarily the club.


 


From the rest of the article he did seem VERY keen to get on board though. Sounds very good.

Seems like he's on his way! Good signing I think, don't know anything about him really but he's played for some good sides and fairly consistently in the Eredivisie so can't be bad. Feel like the side is starting to come together now. 

This is lazy journalism.

 

 

 

""Next week Notts begin preparing for the upcoming season. Then I hope to join it," he said"

 

He has literally done the same thing I did, translated on Google Chrome.

Supposedly we have a centre midfielder ready to be announced today or tomorrow, I know Mr Trew pretty much mentioned this but I have been told that the signing is imminent.

I'm not sure it will be Gill Swerts, as @Super_Danny_Allsopp pointed out, he seems to want to train with us first.

We can live in a bubble and dream about him signing though, as he seems a good player.

We did the ground tour yesterday and les bradd mentioned we may have signed someone. But obviously he didnt go into too much detail. Also met dave kevan and dean yates who both seemed very confident of a good season due to quality of players where bringing in.

Very pleased with the news that he's signed with us.

Hopefully this type of signing will be the one which makes the rest click and to fall into place. I can't wait to see him feature and for Moniz to get the support from the home crowd at Meadow Lane for all his hard work pulling these signings off. Welcome to Meadow Lane Swerts!
