26 January 2018

Gareth Ainsworth has made a fourth signing of the January transfer window, bringing Notts County midfielder Curtis Thompson to Adams Park on a loan deal for the rest of the season.

Thompson, 24, has been restricted to just four cup fixtures in Notts’ first team this season, reaching a total of 100 appearances for the club he joined as a scholar in 2009.

Ainsworth said: “Curtis is someone who impressed me when he’s played against us and I’ve kept tabs on him ever since, so I’m really pleased to be able to bring him here and work with him to help unlock his potential.

“He’s a tenacious midfielder – someone who can win the ball and give us extra strength in the midfield. We’re in a great position in the league and need competition for places all over the park to make sure we can consistently pick up the results we need to have a successful end to the season.

“I know Curtis is looking forward to getting some minutes under his belt and we may need to be patient with him while he recaptures some match sharpness, but I think there’s plenty of talent there and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do for us.”

Curtis will wear squad number 29 during his time with the club.
