Notts County make the most of transfer deadline day


Notts County's transfer deadline day additions continued into the night as Michael Doyle joined from Coventry City on a permanent deal.

The 37-year-old midfielder has made over 700 appearances during his career and won promotion to League One with the Sky Blues last season.

Doyle's arrival follows that of teenage striker Virgil Gomis from Nottingham Forest.

The 19-year-old has been in fine scoring form for the Reds' Under 23s team this season and has also spent time on loan at National League outfit Braintree, scoring once in his five appearances during his month there.

Earlier in the day, Notts brought in Middlesbrough defender Sam Stubbs on loan, while Branislav Pindroch and Kristian Dennis both left Meadow Lane.

Stubbs, the 20-year-old son of former Bolton, Everton and Celtic defender Alan, joined Boro from Wigan on a two-and-half-year deal in July 2018 but is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Teessiders.

Dennis joined Notts for an undisclosed fee in the summer, after scoring 21 goals for relegated Chesterfield last season, but has scored just six in 29 games this season for the Magpies.

He has now been shipped out on loan to Grimsby Town for the rest of the season, with Craig Mackail-Smith having arrived on loan from Wycombe Wanderers.

As for Pindroch, he has played just five times for the club since joining in the summer of 2017 and has failed to make the number one shirt his own at Meadow Lane.

The first Slovakian to play for Notts has now been released from his contract amid an "exciting" opportunity elsewhere.
