Magpies snare Moloney from rivals

Published Add your comment

Notts County have signed Brendan Moloney from city rivals Nottingham Forest on a six-month loan deal.

With Adam Tann leaving at the end of last season and Phil Picken returning to Chesterfield following his loan spell at Meadow Lane, bringing a right-back to the club has been a priority for Magpies manager Ian McParland.

McParland told County`s official website: "Brendan is a very promising young player and he has been a target of mine for a while. In fact, I tried to get him in last season but we couldn`t finalise a deal."

He added: "It is nice to have finally landed him and I believe we have a player on our hands who is more than capable of performing at this level.

"When I saw him play for Forest`s first-team last season I thought he was one of their best players. I have always kept my eye on him and I am really pleased to have him on board."
