Former Newcastle United reserve Goalkeeper Jonathan Mitchell has agreed to join the East Midlands club Derby County. The Hartlepool born stopper has agreed a one year deal with the Rams.
The 19 year old was released last week along with eight others players on the Newcastle United Roster.
Mitchell was behind Jack Alnwick and Freddie Woodman in the pecking order at the Magpies.
The goalkeeper made his reserve team debut in 2011 aged 16 against Manchester City in a 5-1 defeat but impressed with his performances.
Mitchell will be working with former Magpie Eric Steele at the iPro Stadium.
