IVAN TONEY has not said good­bye to Northamp­ton just yet af­ter his new club New­cas­tle United were drawn against the Cob­blers in the Cap­i­tal One Cup.

The 19-year-old barely missed a beat at Northamp­ton last year, ap­pear­ing 44 times and scor­ing ten goals – and New­cas­tle liked what they saw af­ter sign­ing the striker on a long-term deal.

Toney could now make his New­cas­tle de­but against the Cob­blers at St James’ Park.

“For some weird rea­son I just thought it might hap­pen,” said Toney. “When we got pulled out, my phone just went crazy with mes­sages and Twit­ter.

“It’s a great draw for me, against the club I started at.”
