Cobblers boss in talks over defender's international commitments

Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh says he hopes to agree a contract with Gabriel Zakuani in the near future.

The club have offered the defender a contract, subject to reaching an agreement on his international commitments with DR Congo.

“Talks are ongoing with Gaby and I don’t think we are too far away,” Edinburgh said.

“The international situation with Gaby is a big thing for me but hopefully we will come to an agreement.

“We want to get the agreement right and if we can get the commitment from Gaby hopefully a deal will be concluded."

The Cobblers boss also said he was delighted to be retaining the services of Matt Taylor.

“Matt is staying and for me that is a no brainer.

“He’s played nearly every minute of every game for me and his goals and assists have been a vital part of the club retaining League 1 status.

“He’s an unbelievable professional and he still wants to push himself.

“He’s not missed a day’s training and he is a fantastic influence around the football club.

“To get him for another year is fantastic and I look forward to continuing to work with him.”
