Manchester City midfielder in Sixfields move

Northampton Town have signed the highly rated Manchester City midfield player Emyr Huws on loan until January 5 2013.

Llanelli born Huws is a former pupil of Rishworth school. He has represented his home nation at U17 level and has had the honour of being made captain.

Formerly with Swansea City, Emyr joined Manchester City's academy in the summer of 2009. Despite being just 19, he is captain of the Manchester City under 21 side.

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd said, "Emyr is a player we have watched over the last couple of seasons. He is a very good player and someone who I think will make a big difference to our squad. He comes straight into contention for the game against Exeter on Saturday.

"We would like to say thank you to Manchester City. We appreciate the fact they are willing to trust us to help develop one of their young players and we will do just that in the period Emyr spends at Sixfields. Emyr will benefit from being with us, and we will certainly benefit from having Emyr in our squad."
