The views of the Cobblers boss

1 February 2021

Cobblers boss Keith Curle says he is pleased with the work undertaken by the club in the January transfer window.

Alan Sheehan signed a new contract, alongside new arrivals Lloyd Jones, Mickel Miller, Ryan Edmondson, Bryn Morris and Peter Kioso, while departing have been Luka Racic (returned to Brentford), Ricky Holmes (unattached), Chris Lines (Stevenage), Harry Smith (on loan to Motherwell), Nicky Adams (Oldham Athletic) and Joe Martin (Stevenage)

“We’ve had a good window,” said the Cobblers boss.

“We’ve bought in players we’ve identified as assets, some took a bit longer than we would have liked but we’ve made sure that when those players did become available we were ready to move. Some players have also gone out in order to further their short, medium and long-term futures.

“We’ve made sure that the finances have been available when we needed them and also that we’ve had the room in the squad.

“No manager is ever going to be one hundred per cent satisfied but I think we are sat in a good place. As I’ve said before recruitment is an ongoing process and even after the window has closed there will still be players available if we feel we need them.

“I think it has clearly been identified by everybody that there needed to be a change in the financial landscape in football and that there needs to be a re-structuring to ensure the survival of clubs. The starting point for that has been at the lower end but I have no doubt that will filter upwards.”
