Northern Ireland International Carroll became a free agent after leaving Greek champions Olympiacos and has signed a one-year contract with the Sky Bet League One club.

The County Fermanagh born Carroll has featured for the Magpies in their pre-season friendly matches against FC Halifax Town and Spanish side Osasuna.

After losing Bartosz Bialkowski to Ipswich last month, Carroll will be Notts' number one this season and will start against Preston at Deepdale when the new campaign begins on Saturday.

The 36-year-old has made over 400 professional appearances including stints with Hull, Wigan, Derby, Rangers and West Ham.

He has amassed 35 international caps as well as winning league and FA Cup honours under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Carroll has also had a one-game managerial career, leading Barnet to victory in the 2011 Herts Senior Cup final against Stevenage. He holds the unusual honour of having won a trophy in his only game as a manager.
