Former Newport County midfielder Jake Thomson has signed for Salisbury City.

The 24-year-old, who was released by the Welsh club in the summer, will link up with the Whites once the club receive international clearance.

Trinidad & Tobago international Thomson started his career with Southampton and has also had spells with Exeter, Kettering and Forest Green.

He joined Newport in June 2012 and made 25 appearances last season, including three while on loan at Lincoln.

Salisbury secured promotion to the Conference Premier last term, but have lost all three games on their return to non-league's top flight.

Speaking after their 3-2 defeat by Alfreton on Saturday, manager Mikey Harris told BBC Wiltshire: "I'm raging inside but there's only one way we can put it right and that's through hard work.

"We'll get back to the training ground this week and they will be working very, very hard. I can assure you of that because I am absolutely fuming.

"There's only so much time you can go and play good stuff, and not get results. That's three games in now and something has to change."
