York City have completed the loan signing of defender Sean Newton from league rivals Wrexham.

The 28-year-old has penned a loan deal with the Minstermen until 4th January 2017, with a view to signing an eighteen-month deal at Bootham Crescent.

The left-back will go straight into the Gary Mills’ City squad for Saturday’s match with Sutton United.

The 6`2” defender started his career with Wrexham’s arch-rivals Chester City, but only made two appearances before departing the Deva Stadium having spent time on loan in non-League football with Southport and Droylsden – the latter of whom he joined on a permanent deal in 2008.

A year later, he joined Barrow AFC but made just a handful of appearances before settling down with AFC Telford United.

He spent four years with the Bucks, making 110 appearances in a variety of positions before going out on loan to Stockport County in 2012.

Having impressed in Greater Manchester, he joined the Edgeley Park outfit for a further year on a permanent contract.

After one season, Newton made a transfer to Lincoln City where he made eighty league appearances over two seasons before joining Gary Mills at Wrexham after a loan stint at Notts County from the Imps.

He was an ever-present for the Welsh side in the 2015/16 season, playing in a number of positions as well as being named captain at the Racecourse Ground by Mills for the current campaign.
