Notts County seal loan signing of Derby County forward Mason Bennett

Joe Jones

Notts County have announced the loan signing of Derby County forward Mason Bennett until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, who made his first-team debut for the Rams at the age of 15 to become the club's youngest-ever player, was snapped up late on transfer deadline day.

Bennett has played six times for the Derby's team this season, including the recent FA Cup third-round defeat at Manchester United.

However, his progress this season at Pride Park has been hindered by injury, his first start under Gary Rowett against Brentford in September ending in ligament damage.

A forward who can also operate out wide, Bennett spent time with Chesterfield during their League Two title-winning season in 2013-14 and at Burton Albion in 2014-15, when they also won promotion.

"I'm delighted to get it over the line because it's been going on for a couple of weeks now," Bennett told the official Notts site. "It went down to the last day and fortunately we have got it done.

"This is a great club and a massive club which is going in the right direction and I want to help it push into League One.

"The manager knows what I can do on and off the ball. He wants me to come in and give the team something a bit different to what they have already. I'm here to gain more experience and make an impact."
