Alan Hardy: 'Notts County looking at special player from three-man shortlist'


Alan Hardy has revealed that Notts County currently have a three-man shortlist of players they are looking to sign before the January transfer window closes.

So far this month, the Magpies have brought in the midfield trio of Matty Virtue, Noor Husin and Liam Noble, who was registered after linking up with the club last year.

The general consensus among fans is the need for a new centre-back and forward and, although Hardy has not spoken of positions, he believes each of the three players being looked at will help "push us over the line".

“We are still looking for that special player and there are three on the list,” he told the Nottingham Post.

"But, as (Kevin Nolan) said all along, whoever comes in needs to go straight into the first team.

“It has to be a player who can make a difference and help push us over the line.

“We are still in the hunt for all three but it is unlikely we are going to hear anything until the closing week of the window.

“That’s because a lot of players wait it out to see which other moves might become available.

“But what it does mean is that it all builds to an exciting finish in the window.”
