Notts County have raided neighbours Nottingham Forest for Spencer Weir-Daley.Notts County have raided neighbours Nottingham Forest for Spencer Weir-Daley.
Weir-Daley has signed a two-year deal after turning down a new contract at the City Ground.
Bradford had expressed an interest in signing Weir-Daley after a successful loan spell at Valley Parade last season, but County have won the race for his signature.
Meanwhile, Magpies boss Steve Thompson is waiting to see if Myles Weston will accept the club's offer to move to Meadow Lane.
Weston, who spent a spell on loan at County last term, is looking for a new club after being released by Charlton.
Thompson expects to learn in the next two weeks if he will be successful in his bid to sign Weston, but he admits he has found it hard to get in contact with the winger.
"Getting hold of Myles Weston is like getting hold of Lord Lucan - and he has got an agent who is more horizontal than he is," Thompson told the club's official website.
"The feedback we are getting is Myles wants another two weeks to make up his mind up, which I find a bit strange as most teams will be back by then."
