Millwall man resolves his future

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Millwall goalkeeper Tom King has agreed a deal with Newport County.

The Lions stopper is out of contract on July 1 and will pen a two-year contract with the League Two side.

Newport manager Michael Flynn said: “I am thrilled to welcome Tom to the club.

“He has a good amount of experience at this level and is at an age where he will continue to improve. It should provide us with a healthy amount of competition between the sticks for the upcoming season.

“Tom reminds me of Joe Day when he first came to the club, he is a very talented goalkeeper and I look forward to working with him. I know he is looking forward to settling in and getting amongst the lads for pre-season.”

King said: I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Newport County, it’s a great chance for me to showcase my ability in an already flourishing team. Can’t wait for the break to be over now so we can get down to business.”
