NEWPORT County AFC have announced the signing of goalkeeper Tom King on a permanent deal, subject to EFL, FA and international clearance.

The former Millwall keeper joins County on a two-year contract, subject to clearance and is looking forward to his first season at Rodney Parade.

On signing for the Exiles, King said: “I'm absolutely delighted to be joining Newport County, it's a great chance for me to showcase my ability in an already flourishing team.

"I can't wait for the break to be over now so we can get down to business.”

The 24-year-old signed his first professional contract with Millwall in 2014 and went on to enjoy loan spells at Welling United, Braintree Town, Stevenage and most recently, AFC Wimbledon.

After completing the deal, County manager Michael Flynn said: “I am thrilled to welcome Tom to the club.

"He has a good amount of experience at this level and is at an age where he will continue to improve.

"It should provide us with a healthy amount of competition between the sticks for the upcoming season.

"Tom reminds me of Joe Day when he first came to the club, he is a very talented goalkeeper and I look forward to working with him.

"I know he is looking forward to settling in and getting amongst the lads for pre-season.”

With Nick Townsend also contracted for next season, the arrival of King could signal the end of Day's time at the club.

The Exiles number one, who first arrived in 2014, is out of contract this summer.
