Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth has made his fourth signing of the January transfer window, bringing midfielder Curtis Thompson to Adams Park on a loan deal from promotion rivals, Notts County, for the rest of the season.
Thompson, 24, has made 100 appearances for the Magpies since joining as a scholar in 2009 but has been frozen out of the team at Meadow Lane, making just four first team appearances this season.
Speaking about the combative midfielder, Ainsworth said: “Curtis is someone who impressed me when he’s played against us and I’ve kept tabs on him ever since, so I’m really pleased to be able to bring him here and work with him to help unlock his potential.
“He’s a tenacious midfielder – someone who can win the ball and give us extra strength in the midfield. We’re in a great position in the league and need competition for places all over the park to make sure we can consistently pick up the results we need to have a successful end to the season.
“I know Curtis is looking forward to getting some minutes under his belt and we may need to be patient with him while he recaptures some match sharpness, but I think there’s plenty of talent there and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do for us.”
Thompson is eligible for selection for Wycombe’s next match on Tuesday evening, when they travel to table topping Luton Town.
