NEWPORT County AFC have announced the signings of defender Darren Jones and midfielder Yan Klukowski.

As revealed by the Argus, Jones has been in talks to return to the club since the season ended. He rejected an offer of a new contract at AFC Wimbledon and joins County as a free agent and has signed a one-year deal with the Exiles.

Klukowski, aged 27, turned down a new contract at Conference club Forest Green Rovers at the end of last month after playing more than 150 games for the Gloucestershire outfit.

He has agreed a two-year contract at Rodney Parade.

Manager Justin Edinburghs said: 'I said I wanted to provide quality and depth to the defence and midfield as we are strong at present with attacking options.

"It is great to get two targets I have been following for a while and the squad is shaping up nicely prior to pre-season.'
