JUSTIN NIPS IN TO SIGN POW­ELL

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO PLAY-OFF PREVIEW - By Richard Dore

NORTHAMP­TON Town have signed winger Daniel Pow­ell af­ter he was re­leased by MK Dons.

Pow­ell, 26, joins the League One side hav­ing come through the Dons academy and rack­ing up 270 ap­pear­ances for the club.

In that time, the wide­man scored 46 goals and helped win pro­mo­tion to the Cham­pi­onship in 2015 but then en­dured rel­e­ga­tion last sea­son.

Northamp­ton man­ager Justin Ed­in­burgh said: “De­spite only be­ing in his mid-20s, he has a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence in League One and the Cham­pi­onship and he pro­vides qual­i­ties I feel we need more of in the squad.

“He of­fers pace and width, he is direct and he is a threat to de­fend­ers.

“He is the sort of player who keeps sup­port­ers on the edge of their seats and I think he is a very good sign­ing for us.”

Pow­ell is Ed­in­burgh’s first sum­mer sign­ing and the Lu­ton-born winger said he turned down other in­ter­ested clubs to sign for Northamp­ton.

“I had quite a few of­fers, I needed to freshen up some­where, have a new goal, new aims, and I think Northamp­ton fits that,” he said.

Pow­ell joins on a twoyear con­tract.

MOVE: Daniel Pow­ell
