Exiles manager Justin Edinburgh told the club's website:external-link "We looked at Joe last year but unfortunately he went on loan to Gillingham.

"Joe is an exciting prospect and with Rene [Howe] being out until gone Christmas time he will add to this area of the team."

County's next match is at home against Northampton Town on Saturday 13 September.
