Notts County have signed former Wales international David Vaughan on a free transfer.
The 35-year-old joins the Magpies after being let go by rivals Nottingham Forest in the summer.
Vaughan has played in the Premier League with Sunderland and Blackpool, as well as in Spain with Real Sociedad.
He also won more than 40 Wales caps and represented the Dragons at Euro 2016.
“This is a massive statement of intent from us,” Notts manager Kevin Nolan told the official club site.
“He’s going to come with a lot of expectation on his shoulders but if there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s Vaughany.
“I played against him in the Premier League – he’s a very good player who went under the radar because of Charlie Adam’s profile at Blackpool.
“They were the team everyone loved watching because of the way they played and what they achieved.
“Adam seemed to get the headlines but when it came down to the accolades at the end of the season, Vaughany picked them all up.
“It’s an unbelievable coup for us. It was almost a tongue-in-cheek call into his agent. We had a few discussions – it wasn’t about money or anything else, it was about him coming and enjoying his football.
“He’s got the intelligence to play in a variety of positions but I think quite naturally he’s one who’ll get the ball, make us tick and drive the tempo we want. He’ll be able to see vital passes others in this league can’t.
“We’re now one of the youngest squads in the league so we needed that experience in the middle of midfield – someone who can take the bull by the horns and be a calming influence.
“He’s going to have an opportunity to play a lot of games and improve players in and around him.”
