INTERNATIONAL EXILES | Brandon Cooper and Aaron Lewis included in Wales Under-21 squad

5 November 2020

Newport County AFC defender Brandon Cooper and Aaron Lewis have both received call-ups to the Wales Under-21 squad.

On-loan Swansea City centre-back Cooper has become an integral part of the Exiles' defence this season having enjoyed a good run of form alongside Mickey Demetriou and Matty Dolan.

The 20-year-old has made 14 appearances for County in all competitions this season since his loan switch from the Swans and netted his first professional goal during the 2-1 win over Harrogate Town on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Lewis, who joined on loan from Lincoln City in the summer window, is yet to feature for the Exiles this term, but was named in the squad for Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two clash against Carlisle. He has made 11 appearances on the international stage for the under-21s and could chalk up two more if he plays in the upcoming window.

Wales welcome Moldova to the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham on Friday 13th November before travelling to Braunschweig to take on Germany four days later.
