Sven-Goran Eriksson has been appointed the director of football at Notts County, the Coca Cola League Two side have confirmed.

The former England manager will take up the role with immediate effect following talks about taking a senior role at Meadow Lane and will be joined at Notts County by long-term assistant Tord Grip, who will fill the role of general advisor.

And the club's new executive chairman, Peter Trembling, hopes Eriksson's appointment will help them achieve their aim of long-term success as he told the club's official website: "Sven and his team join us with an unrivalled football pedigree. Their knowledge of the game and contacts throughout the football world will significantly enhance Notts County's prospects."

He added: "One key element to our future success will be our ability to attract outstanding talent to work with us in all areas of the club.

"Today we have taken the first major step in building our team of experienced and committed people by appointing Sven and Tord."

The oldest professional football club in the world was taken over by a Middle Eastern group, Munto Finance, last month.

The new owners announced their ambition to get the club back into the Championship within five years when they completed their takeover.

Eriksson will look after the club's youth academy as well as player development, transfer negotiations and building overseas links.
