Notts County pays an undeclared fee for the former Newcastle United winger

Notts County completed a move for the former Newcastle United winger, Callum Roberts, for an amount not revealed by Blyth Spartans.

The Magpies moved to the famous widower who was in sensational form in the northern part of the National League, where he scored 11 league goals during this period.

Notts now hopes to add further threats to their attack as they seek an arrival in the top seven with Roberts who should be involved in their trip to Dagenham over the weekend.

Roberts is no stranger to the fact that Notts played against them for the Newcastle United under 23 team in October 2018, which saw him score a penalty overnight while securing a 2-0 win.

Callum Roberts celebrates his goal in Blackburn.

He then scored his first goal for Newcastle’s first team in January last year, when 4-2 winners emerged in an FA Cup match against Blackburn Rovers.

A loan spell ensued at League Two Colchester, but returned to St James’ Park in March before being released at the end of the season.

Despite being tried in several clubs in the summer, Roberts ended up in Blyth where he excelled leading him to be watched by several clubs.

Notts has now decided to make his move to the 22-year-old who represented England under-20 on two occasions.
