Newport County have extended the loan of Brentford midfielder Josh Laurent until the end of October.

The 20-year-old arrived on an initial 28-day youth loan at the end of August and has played three games for County.

"I am really enjoying my time here. The lads are great and the training is good... it has been a good experience so far," Laurent said.

However, defender Aaron Hayden, 18, will return to Wolverhampton Wanderers after his two-month loan.

Newport are bottom of League Two with one draw from their seven games so far this season.

Terry Butcher's side will be seeking their first win when they travel to take on Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday, who are four points and three places ahead of County in the table.
