Newport County have signed left-back Dan Butler on a two-year deal five days after he left National League side Torquay United.

Butler began his career with Portsmouth and made 48 appearances before moving to Torquay in July 2015.

The 21-year-old started all but one of Torquay's league games last season but turned down an offer of a new deal.

"I'm happy to have signed and I'm looking forward to the future and the start of pre-season," he said.

Butler continued, "I've had a taste of League football with Portsmouth and last season I had to drop down to the Conference.

"I've benefited from that and played a lot of games and I'm ready to get back into League Two and hopefully play well for Newport."
