Newport County AFC have signed Eastleigh striker Ryan Bird on a permanent deal.
The 29-year-old is available for Saturday’s League two match with Hartlepool United at Rodney Parade.
Bird is manager Graham Westley’s 12th signing in January as bottom-placed Exiles strive to avoid relegation.
“Ryan has a strong track record in situations like ours and in our league,” Westley told the club’s website.
“He is both a target man and an able runner, essential ingredients on our pitch.”
Bird started his career at non-league Burnham but an excellent goal scoring record saw him secure a move to Portsmouth in 2013. He spent time at Havant & Waterlooville, Cambridge United, Hartlepool United, Yeovil Town and Eastleigh.
