JORDAN Barnett says he had a “fall out” with Latics before leaving for Notts County.

The versatile left-sided player made 24 appearances in all competitions for Oldham in the first half of the season but departed when his short-term deal expired in January.

He mas moved to the Magpies tasked with helping them return to the EFL, Neil Ardley’s side currently sixth in the National League and in the promotion hunt.

After scoring his first senior goal in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Yeovil, the 21-year-old said: “It ended on quite bad terms at Oldham.

“We had a fall-out with the owners and the manager there and I just wanted to come to Notts County and get game time.

“Neil Ardley has put his trust in me and he’s playing me, so I’m delighted.”

Barnett made just seven league starts for Latics with the majority of his League Two appearances coming as a substitute.

The former Burnley and Barnsley youngster has made six league appearances for his new club, all starts, culminating in Saturday’s goalscoring effort against Yeovil.
