NORTHAMPTON TOWN SIGN TETE YENGI ON LOAN FROM IPSWICH TOWN

Striker makes deadline day switch

31 January 2023

Northampton Town have signed striker Tete Yengi on loan from Ipswich Town for the rest of the season.

The 6ft 5in, 22 year old arrives at Sixfields having just completed a very successful spell on loan with Finnish top-flight club Vaasan Palloseura where he scored seven times and contributed eleven assists in 27 games and was named the club's player of the season.

Australian Yengi started his career in his native country, scoring nine times in 38 games for the Adelaide Comets before making ten appearances for Newcastle Jets prior to his move to England.

"As a striker, Tete has a lot going for him, both physically and technically, and he is fresh off the back of a very successful loan spell in Finland in the first half of the English season," said manager Jon Brady.

"He fits the profile of what we were looking for from a new signing in that position, he is something different to what we currently have and we are pleased to welcome him to the squad.

"We know there was a lot of interest in him both in this country and abroad. We are grateful that both Ipswich and Tete feel this is the right move for him - we thank them for that - and I am sure our reputation as a club that develops and looks after young players has helped us, as has our reputation for being a good club where players want to be and feel happy.

"Hopefully we will be good for Tete and he will be good for us."
