Exiles sign midfielder Reece Cole on loan from Brentford

10 August 2017

The 19-year old midfielder has learned his craft came through Brentford’s academy and signed a pro-deal in 2016. In 2017, after impressing in Brentford’s B Team getting 6 goals in 24 appearances, he got his place in Brentford’s first team squad and made his debut in the team’s victory over Nottingham Forest. In April 2017, he signed a three-year extension keeping him at the club until 2020.

Reece hopes his loan move will allow him to get “more league football under my belt”.

Reece said “The gaffer really sold Newport County AFC to me.  He said he was going to be playing youth and there's obviously a few experienced pro's in here as well so hopefully it will be a good mixture."

Manager Michael Flynn said “I’m really pleased to get Reece in.  He comes in and offers good competition in midfield and I’m looking forward to see what he can do and looking forward to him fighting for a place in the starting line-up.”

Reece joins the Club on a six-month loan and began training with the team today.  He will be available for the match against Crewe subject to international clearance.

Reece's first interview will be available on iFollow soon!
