Swansea City midfielder Jack Evans has completed a move to Newport County on a free transfer.

Evans recently returned to the Swans following a loan spell with Pafos FC in Cyprus over the first half of the season.

The 22-year-old made his sole first-team appearance for the Swans last season, featuring in the Carabao Cup win over Cambridge United.

Evans came through the ranks after joining the academy set-up at just eight years of age.

The midfielder featured in his first under-23s game against Brighton in December 2015 and signed a new deal with the club 19 months later.

After missing the entire 2018-19 season while he received successful treatment for cancer, Evans returned to captain the club’s under-23s side last term – making 13 appearances in Premier League 2 Division 2.

Evans then had a brief loan spell with Mansfield Town during the second half of the 2019-20 campaign.

Everyone at Swansea City wishes Jack every success in his future career.
