Notts County sign Chelsea midfielder Michael Woods

Woods has only played two first-team games for Chelsea

Notts County manager Paul Ince has signed Chelsea midfielder Michael Woods on loan until January.

Woods has been at Stamford Bridge for four years but has had a serious knee injury and has only made two substitute appearances in the FA Cup in that time.

Ince told BBC Radio Nottingham: "He's a Chelsea player so he'll be able to pass the ball - that's for sure.

"He has all the attributes to be a good player and he's only 20 so has time on his side too."

Woods came through the youth ranks at Leeds United but moved to Chelsea in controversial circumstances in 2006.

Leeds agreed a settlement with Chelsea after dropping a complaint that they tried to poach three academy scholars.

Woods has also been given permission to play in Saturday's FA Cup second round tie against Bournemouth at Meadow Lane.
