Cobblers make first new signing of the summer

5 May 2017

Northampton Town boss Justin Edinburgh has made his first new signing of the summer by capturing the signature of former MK Dons winger Daniel Powell on a two year deal effective from July 1st.

26 year old Powell made more than 250 appearances for Milton Keynes Dons, scoring 46 goals.

"I am delighted to welcome Daniel as our first signing this summer," said manager Justin Edinburgh.

"Despite only being in his mid twenties, he has a wealth of experience in League 1 and the Championship and he provides qualities I feel we need more of in the squad.

"He offers pace and width, he is direct and he is a threat to defenders. He is unpredictable, he is the sort of player who keeps supporters on the edge of their seats and I think he is a very good signing for us.

"Daniel is an exciting player who offers flair and skill along with a goal threat, he is a good age and I am sure he will prove a popular addition for the supporters.

"We spoke about having a better balance to the squad, of having more options and players with pace who can change games, and Daniel helps in all of those areas.

"We also spoke about the importance of having good characters in the dressing room, Daniel is certainly a good character, he is an excellent professional and he will fit in well.

"We identified Daniel as one of our early targets and we are delighted to have secured this deal so early on."
