Chelsea goalkeeper Mitchell Beeney has extended his loan spell at Newport by another two months.

The 20-year-old, whose father Mark is a former Brighton keeper and currently under-21 goalkeeping coach at Stamford Bridge, will stay with the Exiles until April 16.

Beeney initially moved to Rodney Parade in mid-January and has made four appearances so far.

County boss Warren Feeney told the club's official website: "I'm delighted that Mitchell has chosen to extend his stay with us. I am very pleased to have him on board.

"The whole squad has taken to Mitchell and I want competition for places. I have three very good goalkeepers in the squad at present and I want to keep that competition for places, as it keeps everybody on their toes.

"I have been very impressed with his performances so far. He comes from a very good footballing upbringing at Chelsea and he is a player that I am delighted to have at my disposal."
