Cobblers bring in Palace striker
Northampton Town have signed Crystal Palace striker Keshi Anderson on loan until the end of the season.
The 21 year old, who was a prolific scorer in non-league football prior to joining Palace, enjoyed a successful spell at Doncaster Rovers in 2015/16, scoring three times in five League 1 starts for Rovers before joining Bolton Wanderers on loan at the start of this season. With competition for striking places fierce at the Macron Stadium, Anderson played ten games for the promotion chasing Wanderers, scoring to earn them a draw with Southend United.
"Keshi is a lively, mobile forward who is full of energy and who will complement the strikers already here," said manager Justin Edinburgh.
“I felt we needed a striker who could stretch defences and worry them with speed and movement, and Keshi can so that.
"He has already had some experience of League 1 with both Bolton and Doncaster and I know he is highly rated by Crystal Palace who believe he has a big future in the game.
"Competition for places meant he perhaps didn't play as often as he may have wished at Bolton, but we have monitored him closely and we are sure he can come in and help us.
"He has a lot of pace and he is a clever footballer, he has knowledge beyond his age and experience and he will do a good job for us."
