Chesterfield will be without their top scorer from last season when they line up in the National League in August.
League Two side Notts County have landed his signature for a significant undisclosed fee.
The 28-year-old scored 21 goals for the Spireites last season, 19 of which came in the league despite the Derbyshire outfit’s relegation.
And the Mancunian is targeting an even better tally in 2018-19 after securing an immediate return to the EFL by signing a three-year deal at Meadow Lane.
“I’m aiming for more, to be honest,” he said. “Hopefully, playing in a team that’s challenging for promotion, I’ll get 25 – if not more.
“I like to work hard, get hold of the ball and make runs in behind – and to put the ball in the net, which is what I’m paid to do.
“I back myself on either foot when I’ve got a shot on goal.”
