Newport have completed the permanent signing of Kevin Feely from Charlton.
The defender made 10 appearances while on loan with the Exiles last season and scored in their final-day win over Rochdale.
Manager Justin Edinburgh told the club website: "I spoke to Kevin on several occasions and told him he was part of my plans for the future of the club.
"He expressed his appreciation and certainly enjoyed his time here on loan.
"It has been a busy time for the lad and it was good for him to see family and friends in Ireland before making a decision and I am delighted he has agreed to sign for Newport County AFC.'
