Newport County have announced that forward Corey Whitely has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with the Exiles.

The 27-year-old has plenty of experience at the top level of the non-league circuit, most recently featuring for Ebbsfleet United after joining the Kent-based outfit from fellow National League side Dagenham and Redbridge in January 2018.

Born in Middlesex, he has notched up a total of 35 goals as well as 22 assists in the last three seasons.

After his move was finalised, Whitely said: “I can’t wait to get the ball rolling. I like to get forward, I can play on the left, the right or in behind the strikers. I’m buzzing, I am really looking forward to getting started.

“I can’t wait to meet up with the boys, get to know them and get pre-season underway and obviously then the season.”

Manager Michael Flynn said: “Corey is a very exciting player. He is a player with lots of pace and can also play in a number of different attacking positions.

“Corey has taken a pay cut to sign and play for this football club which already shows me his desire to play well for Newport County AFC. I can’t wait to see him in action.”
