“The 18-year-old is highly touted at Meadow Lane having joined the youth set-up in 2021 and went on to sign his first professional deal this summer after impressing the coaching staff with his performances.

“Munakandafa has spent some time on loan at United Counties side Melton Town and had recently been on trial at Barnsley and Blackburn Rovers. He has also twice represented England Colleges.

“We offer huge thanks to manager Luke Williams and Chief Executive Jason Turner for getting this deal over the line and we will do our utmost to offer a high level of experience to Luther as part of his development for Notts County.”
