Newport have signed midfielder Mitch Rose from Sky Bet League Two rivals Mansfield on a short-term deal.

The 22-year-old joined the Stags in the summer of 2015 from Ilkeston and made 60 appearances during that time.

"I can confirm to all Mansfield Town supporters that Mitchell Rose has left us to join Newport County," Mansfield manager Steve Evans told his club's official website.

Rose, the brother of Tottenham and England full-back Danny, becomes County boss Graham Westley's 11th new signing of the January transfer window.
