Newport County boss Graham Coughlan received a major boost today ahead of the new League Two campaign with the return of Liverpool defender Adam Lewis on a season-long loan, subject to EFL approval.
Lewis, 23, made a lasting impression while on loan at Rodney Parade last season before his spell was unfortunately cut short by injury in February.
The left-sided defender made 21 league appearances for the Exiles last time out, with his versatility and ability to cross the ball from the wing back role making him a vital member of the squad with six assists and one goal.
A former England international at Under-16, U17, U19 and U20 level, he signed a long-term contract with Premier League Liverpool in 2020 after joining the Reds Academy at under-six level. The local product progressed through the ranks to the U23 side after captaining the U18s under Steven Gerrard in 2017-18.
He made his senior debut in the FA Cup fourth-round replay victory over Shrewsbury Town at Anfield in February 2020 and regularly trained with Jürgen Klopp's squad.
Loan spells followed at French side Amiens SC, Plymouth Argyle and Scottish Premiership side Livingston before Lewis found his way to Newport last season.
Graham Coughlan was thrilled to welcome Lewis back: Adam is great to have at the back and it is fantastic to have him back around the club!” Explained the Gaffer.
“Adam gives us a couple of options and qualities that we were lacking previously.
We’d like to thank Liverpool F.C for helping us get this move complete.”
Lewis was equally as delighted with the move: “I love Newport.” Explained Adam.
“I’ve loved it ever since I came here, I’m really hoping we have a good season and achieve what we want to achieve.”
