The Notts manager is thought to have all-but concluded a deal for a tall French midfielder, believed to be Aziz Rabbah.
Meanwhile, the News of the World have today reported that Swansea City’s out-of-favour front-man Mark Goodfellow is the second of Gudjon’s proposed targets.
With Swansea having completed the signing of Rory Fallon during the January transfer window, Goodfellow, 24, has slipped further down the pecking order with the League One high-fliers, and is now widely-believed to be looking elsewhere for first team football.
The former Bristol City man has struggled to establish himself at the Liberty stadium, having made just five starts for City since signing during the close season and now looks likely to join Gudjon Thordarson’s promotion surge, though the Icelander faces competition from a number of other League Two clubs for his signature.
Elsewhere, League Two rivals Rushden & Diamonds have snapped up former Notts man, Darren Caskey. Returning to England via U.S. side Virginia Beach Mariners, the now 31-year old has joined a Rushden side placed 23rd in the League Two table, signing until the end of the current campaign.
The former Spurs and Reading midfielder made his Diamonds bow yesterday, coming off the bench for the final twelve minutes of their 3-0 victory over Oxford, managing only to get himself in the referee’s book.
