Striker Izale McLeod has won his battle to force a move away from Crawley Town and joined League Two rivals Notts County.

The 30-year-old striker, who had a year left to run on his contract at the Checkatrade.com Stadium, is believed to have penned a deal for a fee of reportedly £150,000.

Last season’s 21-goal hit man for Reds has been the subject of much transfer speculation over the summer with interest from Millwall, Southend United, Coventry City and Burton Albion.

County chairman Ray Trew revealed at the start of August that the Magpies had had a £100,000 offer for the former MK Dons and Portsmouth player, who they signed on a free transfer last year, rejected by Crawley.

McLeod had not featured for Reds yet this season as he worked to engineer a transfer and both manager Mark Yates and chief executive Michael Dunford had said they would be holding out for the right price and until then the forward could watch from the stands.

But both parties have now agreed upon a fee which will see last season’s top-scorer move north.

Reds fans won’t have too long to wait to see their former player in action again, however, when Crawley travel to Meadow Lane in League Two on September 5.
