Notts County have completed the signing of attacking midfielder Jodi Jones on loan until the end of the season.

Jones will wear the number ten for the Magpies.

The star is familiar to County fans after scoring a hat-trick against them on the opening day of the 2017 League Two season for Coventry City.

Jones has also represented Malta at an international level and played in the Nations League earlier this season against Estonia.

Speaking to the media at Notts County, head coach Luke Williams said: “He’s a boy with huge talent and I believe it’s only injury which has stopped him from becoming a very successful Championship player, at least.

“Jodi can play inside the pitch or wide. He’s comfortable going at people, which I experienced at Swindon when he played wide right and destroyed us that night.

“He has the ability to change direction and beat players, and he’s always threatening to provide an assist or score.”

Jones began his career at Dagenham and Redbridge, joining the youth system at an under-13 level before making his first team debut for the Daggers in February 2015 as a substitute.

Jones then signed for Coventry in 2016, where he spent six years making 70 appearances, scoring seven goals in this time.

The spell was hampered by injury suffering an anterior cruciate ligament tear in 2018 which side-lined him for almost two years.

Jones joined Oxford United in July 2022 and has maintained fitness since, proving him to be worth the interest from Williams.

Jones will be eligible for selection in County’s home game against Halifax Town this Saturday, January 28.
