Carroll, a free agent after leaving Greek champions Olympiacos, played in the Magpies' 1-0 defeat at Halifax on Saturday.

Derry plans to hold talks with the 36-year-old Northern Ireland international this week about a deal to bring him to Meadow Lane.

"I will have a sit down with him and have a chat. It would be nice if we can sort something out," Derry told reporters following the defeat at Halifax.

"He is the type of keeper I am looking for. He's a man. I heard him talking to the back four and he's got a great mentality.

"He didn't have much chance with the goal, but he commanded his box well and that's what you get with a goalkeeper of his experience."

Notts are in the market for a goalkeeper with experience after losing Bartosz Bialkowski to Ipswich earlier this month.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
