PLAYER NEWS | Defender Ryan Haynes joins the Exiles

12 July 2019

Newport County AFC are delighted to announce the signing of 23-year-old wing-back Ryan Haynes on a two-year-deal.

Ryan began his career in the West Midlands making his professional breakthrough for Coventry City in the 2012/13 season.

It was in the 2014/15 season when a 19-year-old Haynes cemented his place in the first team, making a total of 31 appearances for The Sky Blues in all competitions.

The attacking left-back went on to enjoy a loan spell at Cambridge United the following season before becoming a regular fixture in the Coventry City side.

In the summer of 2018, the Northamptonshire-born defender made the switch to Shropshire where he made 25 appearances for Shrewsbury Town.

Ryan joins the club adding both experience and quality to the squad as 122 of his 132 career appearances have come playing for Sky Bet League One teams.

After finalising the deal, Ryan Haynes said, "I’m happy to have joined Newport. It’s a new challenge for myself and I’m really looking forward to the season ahead."

Manager Michael Flynn said, "Ryan is a very talented full back and I am delighted to have got him. I have spoken to a few people about him and they all believe there is a very good player there."
