Swansea City midfielder Ollie Cooper has joined Newport County on loan for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder links up with Michael Flynn’s Exiles in League Two after enjoying a breakthrough campaign with the Swans last term.

Cooper made his first-team debut in the FA Cup win at Stevenage, and went on to score his first senior goal against Nottingham Forest in the same competition.

That came on the back of a 2019-20 season where he netted five times in 16 appearances for the under-23s, including scoring a hat-trick against former champions Porto in the Premier League International Cup. 

Overall, he has made five first-team appearances to date and Cooper – who has been with the Swans since under-12 level - will now get the chance to get more valuable game time under his belt at Rodney Parade.
