NEWPORT County AFC manager Michael Flynn is set for a busy week in the transfer market before Sunday’s FA Cup third round clash with Leeds United.

County are expected to announce up to three new signings before the match and there will also be players heading out of the door at Rodney Parade.

Midfielder Josh Sheehan is set to return from Swansea City following his successful loan spell last season and two other former Swans players are training with County this week.

Striker Paul Hayes, who joined in October, is now finally eligible to make his debut and fellow front man Aaron Williams (below) has returned following the end of his loan spell at Brackley Town.

But Williams, who scored his 23rd goal for the National League North side on New Year’s Day, is cup-tied this weekend and does not appear to have a future with the Exiles.

Jazzi Barnum-Bobb is also likely to be on the move again after his loan deal at Torquay United ends this coming weekend.

Striker Joe Quigley has returned to his parent club AFC Bournemouth but County have now officially confirmed that top scorer Shawn McCoulsky will remain until the end of the season.

Academy prospects Evan Press and Tom Savigar are set to join Welsh League side Undy Athletic on a 'work experience' loan deal this week.

Asked about new signings after Monday’s win over Exeter City, Flynn said: “We’re almost there with a few and I’m sure there will be announcements over the next few days.

“We’ve got some coming in but it is what it is – I’ll have to wheel and deal and there will be players going out this week too.

“I know the situation and I’m sure I’ll sit down with the board again in the next few days.”

Victory over the Grecians kept Flynn’s men within touching distance of the League Two play-off places and he believes promotion is possible if he gets the right players in this month.

“I’ll not get carried away but it’s a positive start,” he told BBC Radio Wales.

“We need to hang in there, hopefully strengthen now, and you never know.

“There’s been a big improvement over the last year but I want to improve even more.

“I’ve told the players and challenged the players and I’ve said the same to the staff.

“We’re not going to just rest on our laurels, I want to improve.

“I don’t like League Two, if I’m honest, and I want to get us out of it.

“Anything’s possible, as we saw last year. Anything can happen.

“And, you never know, if we can find a little bit of consistency and get back-to-back wins on a couple of occasions then we’ll be right in the mix.”

Meanwhile, County have confirmed the results of the Trust board elections.

There were six candidates standing for five places on the Trust board.

The voter turnout was 18.3 per cent of the eligible Trust membership.

Former South Wales Argus editor Kevin Ward received the most votes and he has been elected alongside Bob Herrin, Colin Faulkner, Rob Santwris and Ryan Courtney.
