Notts County: "I'm not going anywhere," says Alan Judge
ALAN Judge says everyone can stop talking about him leaving Notts County this month and insists: "I'm going nowhere."
The Magpies have already rejected a player-swap bid for their star midfielder from Championship club Charlton Athletic.
The Addicks offered them striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, who fired them to the League One title last season, and winger Danny Green for Judge.
But they turned it down because he is so key to their promotion hopes in League One this season.

Judge was told of the London club's bid and is flattered to be attracting interest, but he said: "I will be here at the end of this transfer window, I won't be going anywhere.
"Charlton Athletic is a massive club so it's great to be linked with them, but I'm happy enough at the moment.
"I've told the manager I want to stay here until the end of the season and definitely try to help get us into the promotion play-offs."
Judge says he wants to wait until the summer to decide his future.
The 24-year-old will be out of contract at Meadow Lane by then, but he wants to see if the Magpies are going to be in League One or the Championship next season.
"Fans might think I'm waiting to hold on for more money, but it's honestly not because of that," he added.
"I love playing for this manager because he gives me the freedom to do what I want and playing for him is great.
"I also want to see where we are."
The Magpies are scheduled to face Oldham Athletic in League One at Meadow Lane tonight (7.45pm), but the game is in doubt because of snow and freezing temperatures so there will be a pitch inspection at 10am.
They beat the wintry weather to play Sheffield United on home soil on Saturday.
And Judge, who scored a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw against the Blades, hopes the game against the Latics is on.
"If you ask any one of us we all want the game to be on even if the pitch is not in the best condition," he said.
"We want to play – we've already had enough games called off, we don't want a backlog.
"We want to get out there and try to win."
