Malta international Jones makes Notts County switch on loan

Jodi Felice Jones will continue the second part of the 2022/2023 season at Notts County after agreeing a loan move until the end of the campaign.

Jones, 25, has struggled to breakthrough into Oxford United’s starting formation and will be hoping to have more playing minutes at Notts County, in the National League.

Notts County are currently second in the National League, on 62 points as they trail leaders Wrexham by three.

They are pushing for a return to the Football League and they are hoping that Jones can add more offensive prowess to their current squad.

“Jodi’s a player I’ve faced when working in the Championship and League One,” coach Luke Williams told Notts County’s official website.

“He’s a boy with huge talent and I believe it’s only injury which has stopped him from becoming a very successful Championship player, at least.

“Jodi can play inside the pitch or wide. He’s comfortable going at people, which I experienced at Swindon when he played wide right and destroyed us that night.

“He has the ability to change direction and beat players, and he’s always threatening to provide an assist or score.

“Not only that, but we’re bringing in a guy who’s ambitious to play games because of how much unfortunate disruption he’s had in his career.

“He was really keen to come here because he’s seen how the guys have been playing, and he wants to be involved in us trying to win the league.”

Jones has four international caps having made his debut in the away fixture against Estonia, in last September’s UEFA Nations League game.

He featured in three friendly matches as well – against Israel, Greece and the Republic of Ireland.

Jones has been given the number 10 shirt and will be eligible for selection when Notts County welcome FC Halifax Town to Meadow Lane on Saturday.
