Notts County complete permanent Kyle Wootton signing


Notts County have announced the permanent signing of Kyle Wootton from Scunthorpe United.

The 23-year-old has been sensational at Meadow Lane since his loan switch last summer, scoring 12 goals so far.

Neal Ardley admitted last week that Notts had working for two months on turning the transfer of Wootton into a permanent one and it has certainly reaped dividends.

Wootton has signed a deal that runs until the end of the 2021-22 season and whilst the fee is officially undisclosed, the Nottingham Post has reported it as around £60,000.

“I’m absolutely delighted to get it done,” Wootton told the club media team. “I couldn’t be happier and I’m ready to keep improving and helping the club go in the right direction.

“I’ve been here on loan and it’s felt like home – that’s a really important thing for me.

“I was at Scunthorpe for 13 years and it was a massive part of my life but it’s the right time to move on.

“This club has a big place in my heart and I’m ready to keep moving forwards with Notts now.”

I would have given him a 5-year-deal myself, yet I openly admit this might have been a bit OTT.

2 years is a very sensible option.

We need to be ensuring players like Kyle we can move forward and grow together, I don't want to see the Alan Judge situation whereby we don't meet that forward progression every club seeks to make. If we build wisely, sign players who stock we can later sell but replace well - we would have moved forward a lot.

It's always disappointing to see a good player leave, especially for free. Likewise, it hurts when we can't capture them as first team signings such as Ryan Yates and Jorge Grant.
