McGregor joins County again

Notts County have signed Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor on loan for the rest of the current campaign.

The 20-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at Meadow Lane until his initial deal ran out earlier in the month.

Magpies chief executive Jim Rodwell is thrilled to have McGregor back at the club.

He said: "We are obviously delighted to have secured Callum's signature for the rest of the season and I am sure that our fans will share in the excitement and anticipation of seeing him back in action for us.

"I have to say a big thank you to Celtic for the way that they have worked with us throughout not only the initial negotiations to bring Callum here in the first place, but also since his loan deal ended and in light of interest from a number of high-profile clubs.

"It is understandable that Callum has been attracting the interest of other clubs because he is obviously a very talented player with a bright future ahead of him, but Celtic kept us informed at every stage of the process and were fair and honest throughout.

"Now we are just looking forward to seeing Callum pull on the black and white shirt once again and continue his development with us here at Meadow Lane over the coming weeks and months."
