Stockport County director of football Simon Wilson believes completing the signing of loan midfielder Elliot Newby makes perfect sense.

The 25-year-old has been on loan with the Hatters for the past two months from Chorley, with a full transfer now announced.

Former Bolton Wanderers youngster Newby has signed for an undisclosed fee, agreeing a two-year deal.

Wilson told the club’s website: “I’m delighted that Elliot has accepted our offer and committed his next two years to the club. I think it represents a good opportunity for all.

“For Elliot, it’s a second chance of full-time football and a great environment for him to develop within. For us, it’s a very sensible deal for a player who we believe has the qualities to play in our team at this level and above.”
