NEWPORT County AFC have confirmed that defender Daniel Leadbitter has joined Yeovil Town on a season-long loan deal.

Leadbitter will join up with the National League side until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

The news of Leadbitter's departure on loan comes as the third County transfer headline in just three days.

Yesterday, County announced the signing of forward Scott Twine on a season-long loan from Swindon Town.

Twine will join up with Michael Flynn's men until the end of the 2020/21 season after joining from the Sky Bet League One club, with the option of him returning to the Robins in January.

The 21-year-old, who progressed through Swindon's academy ranks, made his first-team debut on the final day of the 2016/17 season.

He made six appearances for Richie Wellens' side in their Sky Bet League Two campaign last season, playing a part in their promotion to Sky Bet League One.

Also announced this week was the announcement that Liam Shephard will join the Exiles until at least the summer of 2021.

This follows his successful trial period with the club, playing a part in County’s pre-season schedule ahead of the upcoming campaign.

The defender, who can also operate as a midfielder, left fellow Sky Bet League Two side Forest Green Rovers in the summer after making 67 appearances during his time at the New Lawn.
