Notts County have confirmed their first signing of the summer, re-signing Jodi Jones after his loan from Oxford United.
Following a successful loan spell that resulted in promotion to League Two, the Malta international has signed a two-year contract.
His standout moment in black and white came in their play-off semi-final at Meadow Lane when County faced Boreham Wood. A fierce strike in the 120th minute secured the Magpies their place at Wembley, in the play-off final.
We're delighted to confirm that @JodsJones has signed a two-year contract at Meadow Lane! 😀

There’s no questioning the influence Jodi has had on the squad during his loan stay, and Notts County supporters will be delighted to learn that he’s signed on the dotted line and will be part of County’s long-term plans as they navigate their way through League Two.
During his time at Oxford United, Jodi Jones only managed five games. His move to County has rejuvenated his career, with a call up to the Malta international team and the first trophy in his career all coming after joining the club.
Jones has previously had three consecutive cruciate knee ligament ruptures and is widely regarded as one of England’s unluckiest players due to the amount of time he has lost on the pitch. He appears to have struck gold recently, however, with no significant injuries for Oxford or during his loan stay at Notts County.
There is a lot of enthusiasm in and around the Nottingham club, and the first signing of the summer is sure to generate a buzz around the start of the new season in a new league.
