Millwall defender 'over the moon' after Newport County move

DANNY McNamara has joined League Two Newport on a season-long loan. 

McNamara, 20, links up with ex-Millwall goalkeeper Tom King and boss Michael Flynn, who is a former team-mate of Lions boss Neil Harris at Gillingham.

"Danny’s come in from Millwall and he’s highly thought of there," Flynn said. "I’ve got a good relationship with Neil Harris, who I played with, and we’ve kept in contact. Neil speaks very highly of Danny."

McNamara added: "I am over the moon to sign for Newport. I can't wait to get going. I have had several loan spells at lower level, but I feel like I'm ready now for [EFL] football."
