League Two promotion chasers Notts County have signed striker Alassana Jatta from Danish top-flight side Viborg for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old Gambian moves to Notts on a two-and-a-half-year deal from a club owners Alexander and Christoffer Reedtz also have a majority share in.

Jatta, who is 6ft 4in, has scored 21 goals in 103 appearances for Viborg.

Notts recruitment lead Richard Montague said Jatta will add "stature, pace and power" to the Magpies' front line.

Jatta joins a prolific Notts attack that already boasts League Two's leading scorer Macaulay Langstaff, who has hit the net 20 times in the fourth tier this term, and hugely experienced forward David McGoldrick, who has 11 league goals.

"We feel Alassana can make a quick adaptation to life at Meadow Lane and add fresh impetus to what is already a highly potent attack," Montague said.

Jatta's move is subject to international clearance, and the club say he will remain in Denmark until his UK visa is finalised.
