NEWPORT County AFC manager Michael Flynn has signed a new deal to extend his contract until 2020.

The news is a big boost for the Exiles ahead of tonight's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

An official statement reads: "The club is delighted to announce they have reached an agreement with Manager Michael Flynn to improve his current deal and increase its duration by one year.

"The contract will now run until June 2020."

Flynn said: “I’m delighted that the board have agreed to improve my current deal.

"I’ve always said I want to build a club and not a team and the increase in my tenure helps achieve that goal."

Flynn has been linked with the managerial vacancy at his former club Bradford City this week.

But he said yesterday that he’s had no contact with the Bantams and he won’t let the links distract him from tonight's match.

Flynn is currently 18/1 with bookmakers SkyBet to replace Stuart McCall, who was sacked on Monday.

The Exiles boss enjoyed a successful three-year spell as a player with the Bantams before returning to County, his hometown club, in 2012.

And he says he’s flattered to be linked to the job at Valley Parade but fully focused on the Spurs clash.

“I’ve had no contact myself personally and it’s not something I’m thinking about,” he said. “I’m going to Wembley with Newport County.

“It’s nice to see your name linked to other jobs, whatever it is. It means that you’re doing something right but it’s not something I’m thinking about at all because I’m the manager of Newport County and I’m really enjoying myself.”
