Notts County have made the first big-money signing of the Sven-Goran Eriksson era by reportedly smashing their transfer record to sign Manchester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The 22-year-old - son of former Manchester United star Peter - played under Magpies director of football Eriksson at Eastlands and has now moved to Meadow Lane for a fee which is believed to eclipse the £685,000 they paid to buy Tony Agana from Sheffield United in 1991.

Manager Ian McParland told the club's official website, "We're very pleased that Kasper has chosen to come to Meadow Lane."

He added: "He is a significant part of the jigsaw puzzle we're trying to complete before the transfer window closes.

"We look forward to strengthening the team further in the next couple of weeks."

Schmeichel added: "I am very happy to sign with a club with such a long and rich history and such great support.

"I am joining a very ambitious team which is building for the future and it is a very exciting time for us.

"I'm looking forward to working with Ian and the rest of the lads, settling in and getting on with the season."
