Midfielder signs loan deal with Welsh League Two side.
Brentford Development Squad midfield player Josh Laurent has joined Sky Bet League Two Newport County on loan. The 20-year-old signed an initial 28-day loan today, Wednesday 19 August, and will be with the South Wales club until 16 September.
Josh makes the move a week after his professional debut. He played for Brentford in the Capital One Cup defeat to Oxford United last Tuesday, 11 August, having worked with the First Team during pre-season and been part of the training camp in Portugal.
Josh joined Brentford from Queens Park Rangers in January and signed until the summer of 2016. He made 12 appearances for The Bees in the U21 Professional Development League last term, scoring four goals, and played in the centre of defence for The Bees in a Development Squad draw with Nottingham Forest on Monday.
