NEWPORT County AFC have confirmed the season-long loan signing of George Nurse from Championship club Bristol City, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old left-back or left wing-back joins on loan from the Robins having spent the entirety of the 2018-2019 season on loan to Weston-Super-Mare in the Vanarama National League South.

During his stint in Somerset, Nurse made a total of 50 appearances for The Seagulls, netting five goals in the process.

County manager Michael Flynn said: "George will give us competition down the left side.

"He is very comfortable both going forwards and defending and this move also continues our excellent relationship with Bristol City."

Nurse, who joined the Exiles' training camp in Spain and played in last night's 1-1 draw with Egyptian champions Al Alhy, said: "I'm delighted to join the club.

"It's a great move for me, a good step up from my time at Weston last season. I am really looking forward to getting started."
