Gudjon ponders Tann move

Having only returned to the country on Friday following the passing of his father, manager Gudjon Thordarson has wasted little time in running the rule over new signing Adam Tann, after the Notts boss managed to return to see the youngster’s Magpies bow at Ashton Gate on Saturday.

Tann: Working towards a contract?
The 23-year old only signed late last week on non-contract forms before going onto put in a steady performance in the FA Cup First Round, capping off his debut with a goal in the process.

And now, with Thordarson returning to his duties following the funeral of his father, the Icelandic has been keen to assess his options with regards to the player becoming a permanent fixture here.

Although, with eleven defensive-minded players already registered within the squad prior to Tann’s signing, the decision to bring the player in or not will have to be a calculated one, and not a knee-jerk reaction to the defender’s frenzied first week with the club. Something that, we trust, Gudjon already has on his mind.

"Adam Tann put in a steady performance, and I was very pleased with him," said Thordarson speaking to Magpies Online earlier today.

"I can't judge the player on one single performance as I need to work with him in a closer range, see how he trains and everything but I was pleased with him on Saturday and he put in a steady performance."

"What he did, he dealt with in a good, professional manner and he took his goal really well. It helped us, and it helped him and he also kept a steady head in the defence," he added.

"I need to look at what will be available to me to strengthen my squad, and also make up my mind as to if we keep Adam long term."

The experienced defender – who made 148 appearances for his previous club, Cambridge United – is believed to be keen to stay at Meadow Lane, after making an explosive start to his Magpies career.
