Swansea City defender Tyler Reid has joined Newport County on loan until the end of the season.

The right-back, 20, joined from Manchester United's academy in July 2016 and has made 54 appearances for Swansea's Under-23s.

Reid follows midfielder Josh Sheehan to Rodney Parade, who re-signed from Swansea this week on a permanent deal.

Sheehan, 22, scored seven goals for the Exiles last season in 25 appearances on loan before a serious knee injury.

The injury cut short the loan deal and ended Sheehan's season. He was on a month-to-month contract with the Premier League club who have been assisting with his rehabilitation.

"There has been a lot of hard work from myself and the chairman to get this deal done," said manager Michael Flynn.

The deal has been partly funded by Newport's Supporter's Club with Sheehan a free agent after his latest Swans deal ended on 3 January.

Both players are available for Sunday's FA Cup third-round match against Leeds United.
