Magpies snap up keeper Schmeichel

Kasper Schmeichel
Schmeichel also spent time on loan at Bury, Falkirk and Cardiff

Notts County have signed Manchester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel for what is believed to be a club record.

The Dane, who played eight times for City in the top flight and spent time on loan at Coventry last season, has signed a five-year contract.

Schmeichel, 22, played under Magpies director of football Sven-Goran Eriksson while they were at Eastlands.

The undisclosed fee is thought to beat the £685,000 Notts paid for Sheffield United striker Tony Agana in 1991.
