COBBLERS BOSS NOT SURPRISED AT TEMPORARY LULL IN TRANSFER MARKET

Dean Austin expects things to become busier in the coming weeks

8 June 2018

Northampton Town manager Dean Austin has said he is not surprised that things are currently relatively quiet in the transfer market.

"These couple of weeks are notoriously quite quiet on the transfer front," he said.

"It might be slightly different this season with the transfer window closing earlier but we will have to see how that pans out.

"Potentially there maybe one or two of our players going out and we will have to look at that but we will only do deals if they are right for the club. No one will be leaving unless we are happy for them to go.

"I've said before that we won't be making wholesale changes to the squad but we will look to strategically bring in players and place them where we need them.

"We conceded far too many goals last year and we didn't score enough. Defending starts from the front and it's about the team but we know we need to score more goals.

"We had a list of strikers that we felt were attractive to us and Andy Williams was at the top of that list and we wanted to make a statement by going out early and getting him in.

"He is proven at this level and the level above but not only that he is a fantastic person and he is exactly the right type of character we want here."
