Notts County have bolstered their squad on transfer deadline day by registering their own manager Kevin Nolan as a player.
The former Bolton, Newcastle and West Ham midfielder, appointed County manager earlier this month, has signed a deal now that the club’s transfer embargo has been lifted.
The 34-year-old will bring a wealth of experience to County’s midfield as they attempt to avoid relegation from Sky Bet League Two.
Chairman and owner Alan Hardy told the club’s official website: “It was always Kevin’s intention to register as a player and I’m delighted to confirm we have now completed the formalities.
“He will of course need to continue building his fitness but, when he’s ready, I’m confident we will have one of, if not the, best midfielders in the league.”
