Newport County have released Ivory Coast international defender Abdoulaye Meite after less than two months with the club.

Meite, 36, turned out six times for the Exiles after joining in November 2016.

"Abs joined at a time when we had no real back-up in the centre-half position," manager Graham Westley said.

"He hadn't been training and wasn't fit but was available. To his massive credit, he made on-field contributions almost immediately."
