The Magpies would be making a shrewd move by bringing in the Dane.

Nottingham Forest’s young Danish defender Frederik Fisker recently confirmed he will be leaving the club this summer.

The Danish youth international joined the club from Viborg in in September 2014 but has failed to make the first-team at the City Ground.

He told Viborg Folkeblad, last week that he would be leaving Forest and had designs on remaining in English football.

So should Notts County give him a chance?

The recent form of loanee Jorge Grant at Meadow Lane will undoubtedly suggest to Notts County that those who cannot make the first-team at Forest regularly, might be good enough for League Two.

Fisker is a strong and athletic defensive option who can also add some culture to the Notts County defence.

The Magpies are 16th in League Two and look set for another season in the fourth tier. Signing a player of Fisker’s quality could give them hope of moving up the ladder yet again.
