Notts County boss Gary Mills has signed striker Youssef Sofiane on a one-month loan deal from West Ham.
Mills has lost the services of forward Matty Williams with concussion Sofiane, 20, is set to make his debut in Saturday's game at Northampton.
"He is quick and is a player we have been looking at for a while," Mills told the Nottingham Evening Post.
Sofiane has made just two appearances for the Hammers since his arrival from Auxerre in June 2002.
He did play first-team football on loan at Lille last season.
