Birmingham City defender Josh Dacres-Cogley has signed a new contract with the club and joined Crawley Town on a season-long loan.

The 23-year-old's existing deal with Blues was due to run out at the end of the season but now runs to June 2021.

"I know Josh from my time at Birmingham and I think he is a young player with potential," said boss Gabriele Cioffi.

"He can play on the right or left, is athletic and physical and I am sure he will be a big asset to our squad."

Meanwhile, Crawley have also signed 18-year-old goalkeeper Alfie Jones following his release by MK Dons in the summer.

Jones, who has never played a first-team game, has agreed a two-year contract.
