NEWPORT County AFC look set to sign Millwall defender Sid Nelson on loan.

The South London Press is reporting that the Lions centre-back is set to go out and gain more game time to aid his development, with County his likely destination.

The 21-year-old has made 38 appearances for Millwall since being handed his debut aged 18 in 2014.

Nelson has appeared nine times this season, including six League One games, but is currently out of the side after Shaun Hutchinson's recovery from injury.
