NOTTS County are keen on signing Zak Brunt on loan, Echosport understands.

The Sheffield United midfielder has just completed a three month loan spell with Southend United.

But it is now uncertain whether or not Brunt will be staying with Blues.

The 20-year-old made 10 appearances while with the Shrimpers but Notts County – who are sixth in the National League – are now also keen on signing the midfielder until the end of the season.
