NEWPORT County have signed winger Robbie Willmott from Cambridge United.

The Exiles released the following statement on their website moments ago: Newport County boss Justin Edinburgh has described the signing of Cambridge United winger Robbie Willmott as 'major boost' to the squad as they prepare to tackle Lincoln City and close the gap on leaders Wrexham this weekend.

Paperwork was completed this afternoon with the 22-year old, who was capped at England C level and named in the Conference Team of the Year last season, meeting his new teammates today.

A delighted Edinburgh told the website: "Every time I have come across him as a manager he has caused havoc and he is one that I have kept an eye on for sometime and am glad everything has been completed.

"He's been involved in four play-offs, has experience at this level and will be a major boost for us as we head for the second-half of the season and aim to get back to winning ways.”

"He can play on either wing and will give us a different dimension going forward and I'm pleased to have him on board."
