Striker's loan spell comes to an end

4 January 2022

Northampton Town Football Club can confirm that Kion Etete has been recalled by parent club Tottenham Hotspur.

Manager Jon Brady said: “This news is obviously a blow to us but Kion has developed so well over the last few months with us that Spurs want to see him play at the next level up sooner than originally expected.

“We understand that Spurs received an offer from a Championship club to buy Kion but have no intention of selling, however they feel he now needs to be playing in League One for his continued development.

“It’s always the risk you have with loan players but we prefer to look forward rather than back. We appreciate what Kion did for us and we are working hard to ensure that we find a suitable replacement.

“With Kion recovering from injury we were not expecting him back immediately anyway and had planned our recruitment around that, so we just need to adjust a little and bring in another forward to what we had planned.

“For Kion’s part he has expressed to me how happy he was with his spell at Northampton and thanked all the coaching staff for making him a better player.

“We have created a very good environment for all the players and will continue to do that. It’s a team with great spirit and we are looking forward to the upcoming games.”
