Boucaud looks to secure permanent Notts County deal
ANDRE Boucaud hopes to make his move to Notts County permanent.
The midfielder, 27, has been in great form since moving to Meadow Lane on loan from non-league Luton Town, helping them make a flying start in League One.
The Magpies look certain to try to at least extend his loan until the end of the season in January – and could even open talks with him over a permanent deal because he is out on contract at Luton next summer.
Boucaud says there have not yet been any discussions about him staying with Notts beyond his short-term loan.

He said: "I'm just focused on trying to keep playing well and working hard for the team and come January hopefully we will sit down then.
"We haven't discussed anything like a longer or permanent deal and I haven't spoken to anyone at Luton either."
After being frozen out at Luton under manager Paul Buckle, Boucaud is enjoying feeling wanted by the Magpies' boss Keith Curle. He added: "He has done wonders for me.
"It's always nice to feel wanted. It gives you confidence to go out and perform well.
"The gaffer wants me to be myself, play my game, do what I'm good at and that's great.
"I didn't see it coming, but the gaffer has given me a chance to come here and I want to prove to everyone I can play in this league because I know I can.
"I have always known I can play at a higher level, but you need the opportunity.
"Paul Buckle came in at Luton and he didn't like me. He didn't even give me a chance, but that's football.
"I got a chance here and I'm glad because it's a better level and it's where I want to be.
"I'd rather be here than in the Conference.
"The only way I saw for me was down when I couldn't get into the team at Luton, but now I'm here and I want to stay here."
