"Washington will go straight into the squad for Wednesday night's scheduled Sky Bet League One clash at Sheffield United.

"The 21-year-old, who scored over 60 goals at St. Ives in as many appearances, trained with his new team-mates on Tuesday. Striker Shaun Jeffers has joined Newport as part of the transfer."
