Northern Ireland international Paddy McCourt has joined League One side Notts County on-loan for the remainder of the season, from Sky Bet Championship side Brighton Hove Albion.

The ex-Derry City and Celtic winger was on the bench for Shaun Derry’s side which narrowly lost 2-1 at Fleetwood, on Saturday.

McCourt has made 13 appearances for the Seagulls during the current campaign and has one international cap to his name this season, when he played alongside Notts County goalkeeper Roy Carroll in his country’s 2-0 win over the Faroe Islands in October.
