Notts County

Notts County have signed West Ham forward Cristian Montano on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old Colombian, who can play on the left wing or as a striker, signed his first professional contract with the Hammers in 2010.

Montano is available for the Magpies' opening League One clash of the season with Carlisle United.

Notts boss Martin Allen told the club website: "It's no good talking about what he can do because talk is cheap."
