Alan Judge: "I've heard nothing" over new Notts County deal
ALAN Judge's contract talks at Notts County are still on ice.
The Irish midfielder, 24, and the Magpies shelved negotiations over a new deal back in August, after he rejected their first offer.
But he has now only got seven months left on his contract at Meadow Lane – and could even talk to other clubs in just over a month about a move next summer.
He scored a wonder goal to fire Notts to a 1-0 home league win against Swindon Town, which has sparked a fresh wave of speculation about his future.

And he said: "The honest answer is I've heard nothing and neither have any of the other players."
Captain Neal Bishop, Jeff Hughes and Alan Sheehan are among several other players also out of contract with the Magpies next summer.
"There are other players out of contract that are very valuable to the club," added Judge. "I'm sure they will come to us when they're ready.
"We all came to the decision that I'm better off just playing my football and I'm happy enough doing that.
"They'll have their meetings and their own deadlines so we'll wait and see what happens."
Judge has now netted four goals for the Magpies this season – and is targeting ten.
"I was delighted to get the winner," he said. "I saw a little corner so I hit it and as soon as I did I knew it was going in.
"It keeps up my ratio of one in five, which I'm happy about. I've got four now – and I want more. I got eight last year and I've set myself a target of double figures this season.
"I need to be scoring goals because I'm playing further up the pitch.
"Bish has scored five from midfield so I can't let him beat me because I wouldn't hear the end of it!"
