NEWPORT County AFC have this afternoon announced the permanent signing of Christian Jolley from League Two side AFC Wimbledon for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old, who scored five goals in five game during a loan spell with the Exiles before Christmas, signed for the club this afternoon and will travel with the squad for tomorrow's match at Lincoln City.

Manager Justin Edinburgh said: "It's a great signing for the club. We all know what he brings to the side and it shows the ambitions of the board of directors and the club. We have targeted two players and got them both in the last 24 hours."
