Talking to Notts County's official website, Yeates said: "I'm over the moon. When I got told about the interest it was a no brainer for me.

"I know a few of the lads in the dressing room and that'll probably make it easier to settle in.

"I just want to get on the ball and try to make things happen - whether that be behind the front man or from out wide. I've always been about trying to make chances and I try to chip in with the odd goal when I can."

Notts manager Kevin Nolan added: "It's great to have Mark on board. He has vast experience and adds to our quality in attacking areas.

"I thoroughly look forward to working with him."
