Kevin Nolan has tipped Noor Husin for success in Notts County colours after revealing that the midfielder's omission against Lincoln City was due to lack of match fitness.
The 20-year-old signed for the Magpies last week from Crystal Palace but sat out Saturday's 2-2 draw at Sincil Bank.
Nolan was quick to pour praise on Husin's style of play and professionalism, and expects him to be ready for action soon.
“Noor is a fantastic player and a good kid,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“He’s had League Two experience last year with Accrington Stanley and he’s a really good technician.
“He’s got a good engine and I am really looking forward to seeing him in our shirt.
“It was just a bit too early to throw him in against Lincoln as he only trained with us on Friday.
“He hasn’t played many games and we have to get his match fitness up to speed. But I am delighted to bring him in.”
