Trembling hopes to sign new players next week

Published Add your comment

Executive chairman Peter Trembling wants to get Notts County's transfer embargo lifted by next week in order to bolster the club's promotion prospects with new signings.

The Football League imposed the embargo after County's parent company Blenheim 1862 was served with a winding-up order from HM Revenue and Customs over a six-figure tax debt. Trembling is in "advanced talks'' with three prospective investors - one party is believed to be Norwegian telecommunications giant Ludo - and is confident of brokering a deal with one of them by next week.

"As soon as we have paid that debt and satisfied the Football League it has been cleared, then the embargo will be lifted. And it is important we get it resolved next week. If we get serious investors over the line next week we have a target of five or six players we would look to bring in, maybe not all of them but four to strengthen the squad immediately," said Trembling.

That investment would see the debt paid and the transfer embargo subsequently lifted enabling the club, who are fifth in League Two, to sign players.
